No loving pet parent ever wants to think about their animal companion becoming lost or stolen. Unfortunately, these things happen. The best way to ensure your pet’s optimum safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that conventional forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.
A microchip is a tiny little device that is encoded with a number which corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should your pet ever become separated from you, the chip can easily be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered from this scan can then help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.
The microchip procedure is quick, easy and virtually painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for your pet’s comfort. Once implanted, the chip will remain securely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what could possibly happen to your pet if you become separated.
Is microchipping expensive?
Many pet owners are surprised to learn just how affordable microchip implantation is. Olympia Veterinary Hospital offers this service for a minimal charge. It can be performed during a wellness visit, while your pet is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choice.
