Microchips are an important way to identify your pet and they help reunite pets that have gone missing from their owners. These RFID chips are the size of a grain of rice and are implanted under the skin using a hypodermic needle. The chips can be detected with special scanners if your lost pet is found and taken to a shelter or veterinary clinic.
Microchips may also be required for pets traveling to certain countries for identification associated with a health certificate. We offer ISO compliant (recognized internationally) Home Again microchipping and registration for all patients.
