Microchipping

Microchipping a pet is a very simple and inexpensive procedure that can mean the difference between a lost pet and a found pet. Microchips are smaller than grains of rice and are placed just under the skin between a pet’s shoulder blades. The procedure to place a microchip is similar to a routine vaccination, and it is virtually pain-free; pets will feel nothing more than a typical vaccine injection.

Hundreds of pets go missing every single day, and microchips greatly improve the chance of your pet returning to you if he is ever lost or stolen. Microchips are permanent forms of identification that are more reliable than collars or tags because they can’t fall off or get lost. Your pet’s microchip number will be entered into a national database and linked with your information, so all it takes is a scan of the chip to locate your contact information. Just remember to update your information if you move or if your phone number changes so you can always be contacted.

VCA Timpanogos Animal Hospital highly recommends microchipping all pets. To learn more about the benefits of pet microchipping or to schedule an appointment, please contact your VCA Timpanogos Animal Hospital veterinarian today!
