No pet parent ever wants to envision a scenario in which their animal companion becomes lost. Unfortunately, these things happen, and quite frequently at that. The best way to keep your pet safe is to plan ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, and permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is a tiny device encrypted with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should you and your pet become separated, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.

Does microchipping hurt?

Microchip implantation is fast, easy, and virtually painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once in place, the chip will remain safely 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 will happen to your pet should you become separated.

Is microchipping expensive?

Many pet owners are surprised to learn that microchip implantation is incredibly affordable. Country Grove Veterinary Clinic offers this service for a minimal charge. It can be performed either during a wellness visit, while your pet is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choice.

Don’t take chances with your pet’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Country Grove Veterinary Clinic to learn more.
