Microchipping: Ensuring Your Pet's Safety

At Hometown Veterinary Services, we believe in comprehensive pet care, and that includes providing a permanent means of identification for your furry family member through microchipping.

Why Microchip Your Pet?
  • Secure Identification: Unlike collars and tags, which can be lost or removed, a microchip is a tiny, permanent device that offers secure identification for your pet.

  • Quick Reunification: In the unfortunate event that your pet goes missing, a microchip significantly increases the chances of a swift and successful reunion.

  • Global Recognition: Microchips are recognized worldwide, making them an invaluable tool if you travel with your pet or if they get lost far from home.

  • Painless and Long-Lasting: The microchipping process is quick, virtually painless, and the microchip itself can last for the lifetime of your pet.​​​​​​​

How Does Microchipping Work?
  • A small microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted under your pet's skin, typically between their shoulder blades.

  • Each microchip contains a unique identification number, which is registered in a national pet recovery database along with your contact information.

  • In the event that your pet is found, a veterinarian, animal shelter, or rescue organization can scan the microchip to access your contact information and facilitate a reunion.

The Microchipping Process:
  1. Consultation: Our veterinary team will discuss the microchipping process with you, addressing any questions or concerns you may have.

  2. Implantation: The microchip is gently implanted under your pet's skin during a quick and painless procedure, similar to a routine vaccination.

  3. Registration: We ensure your pet's microchip is registered with the appropriate pet recovery database, providing you with peace of mind.
