Microchipping For Animals In Pensacola
Home Again microchipping can be performed at any time in our office. We include the first year's registration in our cost because of how important we feel it is to get your pet's information in the database right away.
This simple procedure involves placing a small chip (about the size of a grain of rice) between the shoulder blades. Each chip has a unique number. In the event that your pet is lost they can be scanned by a local veterinary hospital, shelter or humane society and returned home to you. This procedure is quick and inexpensive and provides great peace of mind for you and your pet in the event they were to ever become lost.

The Importance Of Pet Microchipping And Why You Need To Do It For Your Animal
Quick fact: Did you know that in the US alone, around 3 million dogs and cats are euthanized in shelters yearly? While some of those beloved furry friends may be suffering from a debilitating disease, some of them may be lost pets that the owners weren't able to find. We wouldn't want you to go through that emotional burden of losing your pet, and have them end up in a shelter being euthanized later on. Pet microchipping is a fast, and easy way to prevent that tragic death and help you prevent losing your pets without you having the chance of finding them again.
Pet microchipping is a method where a microchip is implanted on your animal. This doesn't just serve as a tracking device, but it also serves as your pet's identification if they ever show up lost. For instance, after Hurricane Katrina, thousands of pets were left stranded and have been unfortunately separated from their pet parents. Dognappers are everywhere - what if you're walking them in the park, you turn away for a second, and the next thing you know, your fur baby is no longer with you?
These are just some of the most common instances where pet microchipping plays a crucial role. In Europe, microchip implants are now becoming a standard procedure for most pets. In the US, however, it is still optional and pet parents can still opt not to have this procedure done. But if you're given that option to ensure that you will be reunited with your fur baby no matter what happens, would you take it?
Performing this procedure can be done in our animal hospital at anytime. We understand how important it is to have your pet's information uploaded to the database immediately, which is why the initial registration fee has already been added to our cost. Don't worry - while an implant may sound terrifying, it actually isn't.
The microchip, about the size of a small grain of rice, will be quickly implanted in between your pet's shoulder blades. Microchipping is a quick procedure that will give you that peace of mind that you can find your pet no matter where they are, regardless of how they were separated with you. In the event that you've been separated from your animal companion, a shelter or any local veterinary hospital can do a quick scan and help you find your beloved fur baby.
