Have you considered having your kitten, cat, puppy or dog microchipped? If so, you have likely thought about the repercussions of not doing so, which can mean that if your pet gets lost that you may never see them again. Fortunately, a quick and affordable in-office microchip pet ID insertion can dramatically increase the odds that your furry friend is returned to your loving home safe and sound; however, there are more benefits that our Richmond and Midlothian veterinarian offer.
Microchipping your dog or cat is absolutely safe, and the most common complaint is shifting of the chip from the insertion site. This procedure requires no anesthesia and can be performed in just minutes at our office at the Animal Medical Center in Midlothian. Microchipping is very affordable and we can do the procedure and have your pet’s ID placed on the national registry for a very nominal fee. Your puppy or kitten can get a microchip as young as four weeks old.
Additional benefits of pet microchipping include:
Microchips are about the size of a grain of rice, and our veterinarian inserts this microchip between the shoulders using a hypodermic needle just a bit larger than those used for vaccinations. This painless, anesthesia-free procedure allows authorized scan centers to access vital contact information so you can recover your pet. Our veterinarian will issue you a registration certificate so that you can quickly reclaim your pet in the event that they are found.
