What is microchipping?

Microchipping is permanent pet identification. It is safe, simple, and a permanent form of pet identification designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners.

Microchip placemement is recommended during the first puppy visits, at the time of spay or neuter, or as needed when older. The microship is a tiny device, the size of a grain of rice, inserted under the pets skin, with an identification number that is registered by the pet owner. The identification number can easily be read by a scanner that most veterinary clincs and shelters have on hand.

If your pet is lost or stolen, then this identification number can be tracked back to the original owner.

Texas Veterinary Hospitals uses Home Again microchips. The city of San Antonio requires all cats & dogs to have a registered microchip (Animal Care).
