Microchip implantation is a reliable option for permanent, unalterable identification of your companion.  It is safe, easy, and inexpensive.


Microchip identification helps reunite lost pets with their families.  Consider microchip implantation for all pets, even those kept strictly indoors. Ironically, indoor-only cats are the most likely to get lost should they get outside by accident as they are unfamiliar with the outdoor environment.

Why should I microchip my pet?

Microchip identification is the most reliable way to find lost pets and return them home with their owners. The procedure is safe, easy, inexpensive, and practically painless.

When should I microchip my pet?

Some owners feel that their pet doesn't need identification because they stay indoors, but in our experience, these are the most likely pets to become lost when they get outside by accident. As separation from your cat can happen all too easily, permanent identification by microchipping is critical. Every pet should have microchip identification as the procedure can be done at any age.

How does microchipping work?

The microchip is a tiny transmitter about the size of a grain of rice that is implanted by injection similar to that of a vaccine.  The chip provides permanent, unalterable identification that does not migrate or expire. Each chip transmits a unique number that is stored in a database with your personal information so you can be contacted in the event your cat is found and scanned.
