Microchip Pet Identification

By |

Microchipping is a small chip that is implanted at the back of the neck between the shoulder blades of your pet. This identification system is a vital tool in reuniting lost pets with their owners. It is not painful and can be implanted at any age of the pet. Once your pet is registered in the national database it is there for life. All animal shelters and vets have scanners that can read the chip and make it possible to trace the number back to the owner. The microchips that we implant are international and can be read anywhere in the world. It is important that you keep your address and phone number current at all times with the registering company -Home Again is who we use.
