The Animal Health Clinic is pleased to offer Microchip Identification for your pet and horses. Microchipping is the only unique, unalterable, tamper-proof, permanent form of identification that owners can provide for pets. We use the Microfindr (TM) Slim microchip which is significantly smaller than any other chip on the market and thus can be implanted using a smaller needle. As a result, microchipping your pet is no more painful than any other vaccine or injection; microchipping doesn't require anesthesia and takes only seconds. A Microfindr microchip is as small as a grain of rice, and is easily implanted under the skin of your pet between its shoulder blades. This brand can be read by all readers being used today by veterinarians, humane societies, breeders and animal control officers.
Millions of lost or abandoned animals are taken in each year by animal welfare organizations in the US. Due to a lack of identification, only a very small percentage of those lost are ever reunited with their loving families. Microchipping and registration offer the only truly permanent method of identifying your pet.
After your pet is microchipped, the staff of the Animal Health Clinic will register your pet with PetLink (TM). Your PetLink registration is included in the cost of the Microfindr implantation, and covers you for the lifetime of your pet. There are no hidden fees or annual renewal fees required. You will also received a wallet size hard laminated card with your pet's microchip number and the PetLink information as well as a small tag for your pet's collar that identifies them as being microchipped.
Please call today to set up an appointment to have your pet microchipped.
