At Eastside Animal Hospital, we offer a valuable veterinary service: microchipping. A microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted between your pet's shoulder blades, acting as a permanent identification tag. If your lost pet is taken to a shelter or animal hospital, the chip will be scanned, and your contact information will appear on the database. You will be promptly contacted, allowing you to reunite with your cherished four-legged companion.
Many pet owners avoid microchipping, fearing it might be expensive or painful for their pets. These are misconceptions. Microchips are highly affordable and the procedure takes just seconds, causing minimal discomfort to your pet. The chips last throughout their entire life, significantly increasing the chances of finding your pet if they ever go missing.
Even indoor cats can find themselves outside accidentally, and collars with tags are not as reliable since they can get torn off during their adventures. Microchipping is the safest and most efficient way to ensure you never lose your beloved family member.
If your pet is not yet microchipped, there is no better time than now to consider it. Contact Eastside Animal Hospital today to schedule an appointment and provide added protection for your furry companion.
