Our Veterinarian Can Help Keep Your Pet Safe with Microchipping

Does your pet have a microchip? It’s an easy way to help keep your pet safe and increases the chances that they are returned to you if you ever lose them. A small microchip is inserted under your pet’s skin near the nape of their neck. The chip can be read with scanners in veterinarian’s offices and shelters all over the world, so officials can quickly get your contact information and let you know that they have found your pet. The insertion of the microchip is very fast and your pet won’t feel it once it is in place; we use a slimmer needle than standard microchips so there is less discomfort for your pet. If your pet isn’t already microchipped, it’s something you should have done for their safety and your peace of mind.

Remember: if you’ve recently found a stray animal, bring it into our veterinarian’s office in Hunterdon County. We can scan the animal and determine if it has been microchipped. If it has, we can help you contact the owners and reunite them with their pet. You can also take the animal to the local humane society where they will also attempt to scan the animal, find microchipped information, and reunite them with the owners.

Microchipping is Easy at South Branch

Because we believe in the importance of having your pets microchipped, we make it as easy as possible! Our microchips are available without a doctor’s exam for any of our patients who are up-to-date on their Rabies vaccinations and have been seen by any vet within the last year. Simply bring your pet in and we’ll quickly get their microchip inserted and give you the paperwork to take advantage of the lifetime registration, included in the price. All of the microchips that we use are ISO-compliant, meaning they can be scanned at international locations, too, perfect if your family plans on moving abroad and required by some pet moving services. The entire process to microchip your pet takes less than a minute and won’t leave your pet in any discomfort.
