East Poplarville Veterinary Clinic wants to help you keep track of your pet should you ever get separated from each other. Many pets get lost and are never returned to their owners because collars and tags can unexpectedly fall off. Microchip your pet today and you’ll never have to worry again about losing your pet since microchipping is a method of providing permanent identification.
Microchipping takes just seconds to complete; a tiny microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is injected between your pet’s shoulder blades. It happens so quickly, and the microchip is so small that it is virtually a pain-free procedure for your pet.
Once the microchip is implanted, it is important to register it. If not, your pet will not be able to be returned to you. The microchip is registered with a national data base linking the encoded number of the chip to your name and contact information. Whenever a lost pet arrives at a participating shelter or veterinary clinic, the animal is scanned with a universal scanner to identify the encoded number on the microchip, and the owner is identified and contacted immediately.
You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your pet is permanently identified. Just make sure that if you ever move, you update your contact information with the registry.
At East Poplarville Veterinary Clinic, we scan all strays for a microchip in an attempt to reunite lost pets with their owners so that there can be a story with a happy ending. We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery.
