Millions of pets get lost every year, much to the agony of their owners. While some pets end up in shelters, others become stray dogs and cats. Nevertheless, this doesn’t have to be your story. You can save yourself from the agony of losing your furry loved one through pet microchipping.
What Is Pet Microchipping?
Pet microchipping is the process of installing radio-frequency implants beneath the skin of your pet. These implants have a unique ID number, which makes it easier to identify a chipped animal in case the pet gets lost or reported as missing.
How Does Pet Microchipping Work?
A microchip is a unit that consists of integrated circuits used for identification purposes. When an animal worker scans a stray pet using an RFID device, the chip automatically transmits its identification number to the scanner. This makes it easy for the animal worker to locate the owner of the pet using details obtained from the chip.
The Procedure For Adding A Microchip To A Pet
The process of adding a microchip is swift and straightforward. It only requires a few seconds to complete the whole procedure. Adding a microchip to a pet is similar to an injection. The vet may test your pet for any ailments or conditions before implanting the chip beneath your pet’s skin.Schedule A Microchipping Appointment For Your Pet
The Benefits Of Microchipping
Traditional modes of pet identification such as pet tags and collars are good, but they don’t last. It’s very easy for these identification tags to slip off or get lost. Some tags are hard to read, and this makes it almost impossible to identify the owner of the pet. The following are some of the reasons why you should consider pet microchipping:
- A microchip indicates the rightful owners of a pet in case of a dispute.
- Makes it easier to reunite pets with their owners.
- Microchipping is easy, quick and relatively affordable.
- Some microchip registries offer additional services like travel assistance for pets found far from home.

Incredibly grateful to the staff of University Animal Clinic. We have been a customer for over 20 years. They were able to take care of our dog Duke today for an unscheduled appointment for UTI. Couldn’t imagine going to anybody else.
Awesome reptile vet! I thought there was a problem with my bearded dragon so I made an app to bring him in. Dr. Sara was knowledgeable, professional, and down to earth. UAC is clean and doesn’t smell like urine whatsoever. I love coming here and will continue to bring my pets here. I highly recommend this vet. A+ service. Thanks!!!
Dr Sam and staff are friendly, knowledgeable and truly care about your pets health and happiness! We wouldn’t trust our babies with any one else.
I took my galah Rosie for a general physical. The staff and vet took the time to show me (as a new bird owner) how to clip nails and wings and what to look for as far as outward signs of her health. Can’t say enough good things about this clinic and would recommend them without any hesitation!
Thank you to Doctor Simonson, Casey, Dr. Sam and the rest of the team for taking care of Wrangler! You all treated him like a pet of your own and made me feel so comfortable leaving him with you to watch over after such a scary incident. Everyone at your office is so knowledgeable and caring. Wrangler is feeling so much better and back to normal. Thank you for all your help, you have an amazing team.
