Only 16% of dogs and 2% of cats that turn up in shelters are eventually reunited with their owners, according to national figures, but pet owners can improve their odds by microchipping their pets. A small microchip is inserted under the skin between the shoulder blades and then a scanner is used to pick up the microchip number. That number will be registered in a database with the owners information. Any animal that is found and comes to the clinic is scanned. Also, animal shelters will scan every animal that is brought in to them. One thing that you must remember to do is register the microchip. It is a quick easy process. If you receive a microchip at our clinic there is a link under the services tab that will take you to the website where you can register the new microchip. There is no fee to register our microchips. Right now we are having a special for $10 off microchipping. Call us for more details. Click here to see an amazing microchip success story.
