Due to a simple, painless procedure called Pet Microchip - thousands of pets have been reunited with their families. We use the Home Again microchip system. A microchip is a rice sized device that can be easily inserted under your pet’s skin between the should blades. This microchip remains with the pet for its entire life. It is as quick and painless as a vaccine. We register the owner’s information with a national database through Home Again. If a lost pet is found, the owner can be contacted and reunited quickly. Most veterinarians and animal shelters have scanners that read the microchip number and allow the owner to be identified.
