What is Microchipping

Microchipping is a common practice that is used to identify your pet whenever it is lost, stolen, or otherwise out of sight. This technology also stores valuable information like what medication your pet takes regularly. The chip also provides a medical history for your pet so that any veterinary staff can provide proper care for your pet until you’re reunited with your furry friend.

What to Expect from Microchipping

Microchipping pets involves inserting an electronic microchip that is similar in size and shape to a grain of rice into your pet. The microchip is placed under the skin with a hypodermic needle. This injection is the only part of the process involving invasive techniques, which means your pet will not need anesthesia.

When you visit Animal Medical Center for microchipping services, you can get the service in a single visit. We offer microchipping of animals as one of our primary care services for pets. You can schedule an appointment at any time or include this as part of your pet’s annual wellness exam.

Why You Should Choose Microchipping

Depending on your residential address, your pet may be required to be microchipped. For example, homeowners’ associations and apartment property managers may require you to microchip your pet as a pet owner. Also, some communities and cities require that all pets be registered and microchipped as part of the main requirements. Check with your local ordinances and rules for more information.

The Benefits of Microchipping

The other main reason why pet owners’ microchip is to provide pets with a safe method of being returned should the pet be lost or stolen. Each microchip contains an RFID sensor that is activated only in contact with an RFID reader or scanner. When this occurs, the scanner detects the radio waves transmitted by the microchip’s RFID. This information is displayed either on the scanning device or on a computer monitor.
