Every year pets are lost and can be reunited with their family if they are found. A microchip is your dog and cat’s permanent ID. At Mountain Empire Small Animal Hospital we can microchip your dog or cat during any preventative exam or routine visit. It is a simple procedure and no anesthetic is required. We use the Datamars microchipping system that is used by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the world. We strongly recommend microchipping all animals so they are permanently identified with your information.
You can visit the AVMA’s website and the Datamars website to learn more about some of the most frequently asked questions about microchipping your pet. You can also use the Pet Microchip Lookup website to find a pet’s owners based on the microchip number, independent of the microchipping company.
