Microchipping

     Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We proudly use HomeAgain microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery.

What is a microchip?

 According to the HomeAgain website:

 

"A HomeAgain microchip is a permanent pet ID. The microchip itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner over the pet's shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary where the chip is located to transmit the microchip's unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet."

What is the microchip procedure?

 According to the HomeAgain website:

 

"Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. A veterinarian simply injects a microchip for pets, about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to an injection and takes only a few seconds. No anesthetic is required."
