MICROCHIP IMPORTANCE

Fact: Young pets can be micro chipped as early as 6 to 8 weeks of age. Call and set up an appointment to get your new love chipped as soon as possible!

Why is Pet Micro chipping Important?

1. Permanent ID if your pet is lost or stolen

Collars break and collar tags can become hard to read.  Because a microchip will not “wear out”, it can permanently and positively identify your pet and link it back to you once it is registered.

Registering your pet’s microchip your pet’s microchip ID to your name, phone numbers, emergency contacts and other vital information in AKC Reunites database. When your lost pet is found, we can then immediately send you text messages, emails and begin contacting all the phone numbers on your pet’s record to reunite you as quickly as possible.

2. Needed for travel with your pet

When traveling with your pet outside of the United States, it is likely that both a health certificate and a microchip will be required.  For information about health certificates required for your pet’s travel, please contact your veterinarian directly.
