Microchip Implants

Microchips for pets are safe, permanent, and affordable. Because collars and tags can be torn or taken off, microchips are the only way to ensure that your pet will be quickly identified if they become lost. Each chip has a unique identification number that links your pet to your contact information, which can later be modified if it changes. When a lost pet arrives at an animal shelter, they are scanned for a microchip and, if they have one, their owner is contacted and they are quickly returned home. If a lost pet does not have a microchip, it might be difficult or even impossible to return them to their owner. Therefore, we highly recommend that owners microchip their pets. Read our blog post on the "Sanford Veterinarian Blog" about microchipping your dog or cat for more information.
