No loving pet parent ever wants to imagine a scenario in which their animal companion becomes lost. Unfortunately, these things happen, and often at the worst possible time. The best way to keep your pet safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that traditional forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.
A microchip is a tiny device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should your pet ever become separated from you, the chip can easily be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.
Implanting a microchip is quick, easy, and painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the microchip will remain safely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to stress about what will happen to your pet should you become separated.
Many pet owners are surprised to learn that microchipping is incredibly affordable. Westside Animal Hospital offers this service for a minimal charge. It can be performed either during a wellness visit, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choosing.
Don’t take chances with your pet’s safety or your peace of mind – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Westside Animal Hospital to learn more.
