Pet Microchipping

Losing a beloved pet can be devastating. Fortunately, advancements in technology offer a tool to help increase the chances of a happy reunion: microchipping. A microchip is a tiny implant, roughly the size of a grain of rice, containing a unique identification number. This number, when scanned by a veterinarian or animal shelter worker using a special reader, allows them to access your contact information stored in a national pet recovery database. To learn more about pet microchipping from a veterinária brasileira /veterinario brasileiro, give us a call at Animal Kingdom Veterinary Center in Boca Raton, FL. Our Brazilian veterinarian is here to help.

Pet Microchip

Why Microchip Your Pet?

There are numerous compelling reasons why microchipping is a useful step in responsible pet ownership:

•             Increased Chance of Recovery: Statistics consistently show that microchipped pets are more likely to be reunited with their owners compared to pets without microchips.

•             Permanent Identification: Unlike collars and tags that can fall off or become unreadable, microchips offer a permanent and reliable form of identification for your pet. This is especially crucial for curious explorers who might slip out of a harness or lose a collar during an adventure.

•             Peace of Mind: Knowing your pet is microchipped provides peace of mind. Should your pet ever wander off, you'll have the reassurance that he has a chance of being returned to you.

Microchipping Is Simple and Safe

The microchipping process is quick and painless for your pet. Typically, a veterinarian will implant the microchip between your pet's shoulder blades using a simple injection. The procedure is similar to a routine vaccination and many pets experience minimal discomfort.

Veterinarian Recommendation

We strongly recommend microchipping all dogs and cats. It's a small investment that can make a world of difference in reuniting you with your lost pet.

Keeping Your Information Up-to-Date

Once your pet is microchipped, it's crucial to ensure the contact information linked to the microchip number remains current. If you move, change your phone number, or update your email address, be sure to update this information in the pet recovery database associated with your pet's microchip.
