What is Pet Microchipping?

Pet microchipping involves the insertion of a tiny, rice-sized microchip under your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a unique identification number registered to your pet and your contact details. This process is quick, safe, and painless for your furry friend.

At Circle C Animal Hospital, our pet microchipping services include expert procedures conducted by our skilled veterinary team, using high-quality, registered microchips such as HomeAgain for comprehensive coverage. We offer guidance, educating pet owners on its significance and assisting seamlessly with the registration process.

Benefits of Pet Microchipping

Permanent Identification:

Microchipping provides a reliable and permanent form of identification for your pet, ensuring they can be traced back to you even if collars or tags are lost.

Peace of Mind:

Knowing your pet has a microchip offers peace of mind, especially during travel or emergencies, as it provides a secure means of identification beyond visible tags or collars.

Legal Compliance:

Microchipping is often a legal requirement in many areas, ensuring you comply with local regulations and ordinances and contributing to responsible pet ownership.

Increased Reunification Odds:

In the unfortunate event that your pet goes missing, a microchip significantly improves the chances of a swift and safe return by enabling shelters and veterinary clinics to scan and identify your pet.

Prevention and Preparedness:

Microchipping is crucial when adopting a new pet, preparing for travel, or as a precaution against unexpected escapes, offering added security and preparedness for unforeseen circumstances.

When is Pet Microchipping Necessary?

Microchipping your dog is a simple yet crucial step for all pet owners. It’s essential in the following scenarios:

  • Adopting a New Pet: If you’ve recently welcomed a new furry family member, microchipping is a fundamental part of responsible pet ownership.
  • Travel Preparation: Whether you’re planning a move or traveling with your pet, many airlines and countries require microchipping as part of their pet entry requirements.
  • Precaution Against Loss: Even if your pet spends most of their time indoors, unexpected situations can lead to escape or loss. A microchip offers added security.
