Have you had your pet Microchipped? Microchipping is an excellent way to help insure that if your pet is lost, or runs away, it has a good chance of coming home. Each year, millions of pets become lost and risk the chance of not making it back home.
Microchipping is a simple, effective way to prevent this incident. Microchips provide your pet’s contact information including your address and phone number. Comparable to the size and shape of a grain of rice, the chip is implanted beneath your pet’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades where it becomes permanent. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country are equipped with special scanners capable of reading these microchips allowing a reunion between you and your pet.
Valley Animal Hospital & Pet Resort uses the Home Again microchip system which also provides lost pet flyers and lost pet insurance.
