Make Sure Your Pet Always Returns Home
Microchips provide the best form of identification for dogs and cats. Every year, lost pets are reunited with their families because of microchips.
Dog and cat microchipping in Riverview is a simple procedure. A veterinarian simply injects the microchip – which is about the size of a grain of rice – beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine injection and takes only a few seconds. No anesthetic is required. Your pet may feel a slight pinch, but the process is relatively painless.
Once the microchip has been injected, it will last for your pet’s entire life. There is no internal energy source, so you will never have to recharge the chip, replace batteries, or remove the chip. Should your pet ever wander off or become lost, a shelter, veterinarian, or other pet rescue organization can identify your pet and find your contact information by scanning their microchip.
After your pet has been microchipped it is very important to update the contact information with your microchip provider to ensure the safe return of your fur buddy.
