Thousands and thousands of pets are lost each year, due to loose collars or lost ID tags. It is devastating for owners to spend weeks and months searching everywhere for their beloved pets, before giving up and facing the realization that their favorite pet is not coming home. Unfortunately, this scenario happens way too often.
Here at Northlake Veterinary Hospital, we are very pleased to offer microchipping for your pets. Microchipping is a quick, virtually painless way to permanently ID your pet so that you never have to worry about lost tags again.
All it takes is a simple visit to the veterinary hospital to get a microchip for your pet. Our microchips are registered with the national pet registry. Our goal is to keep your pets safe and at home. If they do get lost, we want them easily returned home. This can be accomplished with microchipping.
Microchipping is a safe procedure that involves the simple, quick insertion of a tiny microchip under your pet’s skin. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. The procedure is quick and relatively painless.
Once the microchip is implanted, it is important to register it. Our staff will walk you through the process. Also remember that if you move, you need to update that information with the registry.
Anytime a lost pet is brought in, veterinarians and animal shelters are urged to scan them for a microchip. If a microchip is located, the owner can be found. We truly believe that microchipping is the best way to bring pets home to their owners.
