Microchipping your pet is a safe way to identify your pet in case he or she is ever lost. At Prariehaven Animal Hospital, our veterinarians recommend that all pets be microchipped for safe return if they are ever lost.
Our veterinarians can microchip your pet during your pet’s regular wellness exam. This is a safe, easy procedure—no anesthetic necessary! The microchip is a small, rice-size chip that goes between your pet’s shoulder blades and under their skin. Each microchip is encoded with information unique to you and your pet. In the event that your pet has gotten lost, most animal hospitals, shelters and rescues, and animal control have the equipment necessary to read your pet’s microchip.
If your pet has become missing or if you have come across a lost pet with a microchip, you can use the Pet Microchip Lookup website to find pet owner’s based on the pet’s microchip information. If you are not sure of where to take the lost pet or how to read their microchip, please give us a call and we will make sure to locate and contact their owner.
When it comes to lost pets, our mission is to reunite them with their loving owners. Please feel free to ask any questions about microchipping your pet on your next wellness visit with our veterinarians.
