Have you just adopted a new cat or dog? If so, in addition to a wellness check and immunizations, a microchip may be one of the things that you want to have done. Here at Spring Oaks Animal Care Center we want to inform every pet parent of just how important microchips are for you and your pet. Here is some information you should know.
Microchipping is one of the most important things that a pet owner can do both for themselves and their pet. A microchip helps to ensure that if you are ever separated from your pet, your pet can be reunited with you. A small chip is embedded underneath your pet's skin. If your pet is lost and someone locates your pet, a vet, shelter or rescue will scan your pet for this chip. If a chip is found, it gives the scanner a number that they can input into a database system. This system then returns your name and phone number, so the shelter, vet or rescue group can contact you and reunites you with your beloved pet.
A microchip is a tiny chip, about the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted beneath the skin of your pet to help you identify and locate your pet if he or she ever wanders away. The microchip can be done on many different types of pets, including cats, dogs, rabbits and horses. The process is fast and simple. The microchip is placed inside of a small needle. The needle is injected into the animal, typically between the shoulder blades or on their leg. The microchip is then inserted through the needle, where it is positioned. This is the same exact sensation that your pet gets when a needle is inserted for an immunization and will not harm or cause your pet any pain.
