Routine Pet Wellness Exams
Whether you have a dog or cat, a pet wellness exam will help us identify any health concerns that may get in the way of microchipping. Once we’ve checked your pet from his whiskers to the tip of his tail, we can help create a plan for preventative treatments and other veterinary care. We will likely microchip your pet at some point during your visit.
Your Contact Information
During the microchipping process, you should be prepared to provide contact information such as your address, phone number, email address, name, and or more. This step matters as much as microchipping itself so we can identify your pet even if he gets lost or loses his collar. If you move, you’ll need to update the information with the database. This way, any veterinarian or animal shelter can scan the chip and reach out to you.
Pet Microchip Placement
Placing the microchip is a simple, routine procedure. A vet staff member will inject the chip into your pet like an immunization. The chip is no bigger than a grain of rice, so you don’t have to worry about your pet experiencing too much discomfort. Usually, the pet does not experience too much pain or discomfort. The size of the chip and the speed of the procedure make it mostly painless for most pets.
Since we place the chip near the shoulder blades, the pet also should have a hard time accessing it as it heals. The healing process shouldn’t take long. Your pet will not even need to be under anesthesia for the injection.
