East Lincoln Animal Hospital wants to help you keep track of your pet and make it easier to find them should the unthinkable happen and you get separated. Many pets get lost and are never returned to their owners because collars and tags can unexpectedly fall off. If you choose to have your pet microchipped, you don’t have to worry about a mishap such as this, since microchipping is a method of providing permanent identification for your four-legged friend.
Microchipping takes just seconds to complete; a tiny microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is injected between your pet’s shoulder blades. It happens so quickly and the microchip is so small that it is virtually a pain-free procedure for your pet. Here at East Lincoln Animal Hospital, we offer two types of microchips to our clients in Denver, NC and the surrounding areas: the Home Again microchip and the Google microchip.
Our efficient staff also takes care of the registration process for you. It’s a simple process and a reassuring one, knowing that your pet is microchipped. Just remember that if you move, make sure you change your address listed with the registration number.
You’ll have peace of mind knowing that your pet is permanently identified. Whenever a lost pet arrives at a participating shelter or veterinary clinic, the animal is scanned with a universal scanner to identify the encoded number on the microchip, and the owner is identified and contacted immediately. At East Lincoln Animal Hospital we scan all strays for a microchip in an attempt to reunite lost pets with their owners so that there can be a story with a happy ending.
