Have you ever thought of what you would do if your pet suddenly became missing?
At Deason Animal Hospital, our veterinarians suggest that every cat and dog receive a microchip implantation! This is the best and most effective way to locate your pet and ensure their safe return home.
Our veterinarians can perform a microchip implantation during your pet’s regular wellness exam—no anesthetic necessary! The microchip is a small, rice-sized chip that goes under your pet’s skin, between their shoulder blades. Each microchip is encoded with information unique to you and your pet. In the event that your pet is lost, most animal hospitals, shelters and rescues, and animal control have the equipment necessary to read your pet’s microchip.
If you are not sure of where to take the lost pet or how to read their microchip, please give us a call and we will make sure to locate and contact their owner. When it comes to lost pets, our mission is to reunite them with their loving owners. Please feel free to ask any questions about microchipping your pet on your next wellness visit with our veterinarians.
