Microchips allow permanent identification of your animal in order to ensure their safe return home if ever lost. While collars with identification tags are strongly recommended for all cats and dogs, they can be lost or removed leaving the pet with no means of verifying its owner. Please keep in mind that microchips are not GPS devices.
A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is implanted between the shoulder blades under the skin. It carries a unique number that can be used to get the owner’s contact information.
At West Russell Animal Hospital we place HomeAgain microchips. The registration of your chip is included in the microchip fee.
