At Vegas Valley Pet Hospital, we advocate for the adoption of microchipping, a crucial step in safeguarding your pet's well-being, even if they predominantly reside indoors. Escapes can happen, and with over 10 million dogs or cats reported lost annually, the risks are significant.
The Importance of Microchipping:
- Permanent Identification: Microchips, unlike collars, cannot fall off and provide lifelong identification for your pet.
- Longevity: With a 25-year lifespan, microchips offer a lasting and reliable method of identification.
- Simplicity and Affordability: The microchipping process is simple, relatively painless, and cost-effective.
The Microchipping Process:
- Consultation: Our veterinarians will discuss the microchipping process, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.
- Implantation: Using a sterile applicator, a microchip about the size of a grain of rice is safely inserted under your pet's skin.
- Registration: We assist you in registering the microchip with your contact information in a national pet recovery database, ensuring up-to-date details for quick access.
