Preventive Care


Does your pet have a microchip? Each year, millions of pets go missing and many don't make it back home. Microchipping your pet is a simple, effective way to prevent this sort of tragic loss.

About the size and shape of a grain of rice, microchips are encoded with your pet's unique identification number then implanted beneath your pet's skin, usually between the shoulder blades.

Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country are equipped with special scanners capable of reading these microchips. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned and the information retrieved to assist in reuniting you and your pet.

Make sure to register your pet’s microchip number and keep your information current with any moves or change in information. If you get your microchip with VCA Kickingbird, we will register your microchip with Home Again within 24 hours of implantation. Microchipping is included with all CareClub wellness plans. 

If your pets travel with you, then a microchip may be required by your airline or place of destination. Schedule an appointment today!
