At Avalon Veterinary Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping services for dogs and cats. Thousands of pets go missing every year, and a microchip (with current information!) is an excellent means of permanent ID to help you reunite with your pet.
What Is a Microchip?
A microchip is a small RFID (radio-frequency identification) device. Only about the size of a grain of rice, it is simple to implant under the skin between your dog or cat’s shoulders.
Are Microchips Safe for Pets?
It is designed for safety and does not emit a signal until it is scanned by a microchip reader by a veterinarian, animal shelter, or humane officer. This displays a unique 9- to 16-digit number (like the VIN on a car) that links to a database containing your contact information.
