Pet Microchipping

If your pet runs away, do you know the chances of getting them back? Even the best-behaved pet will escape the yard or run through an open door if given a chance. The sad fact is that most missing dogs and cats rarely make it home. About one in three pets will become lost or stolen during their lifetime, but even those pets surrendered to shelters are rarely returned to their owners. The one sure way to increase those odds is by using our service for pet microchipping. At Venetian Pet Hospital, we recommend a microchip for all of our patients, whether they're housebound pets or those that run free in the yard.

Microchipping: What To Expect

We can install a microchip into your pet in just a matter of minutes and will make it part of your pet's regular wellness examination. The microchip itself is a tiny bit of electronics that are embedded in a smooth piece of glass about the size and shape of a rice grain. Our veterinarian will inject the microchip into the muscle between the shoulder blades using a syringe and a slightly larger needle than the ones used for vaccinations.

Microchips meant for pets are inert and completely harmless to dogs and cats. After a small bit of initial discomfort, your pet will never even notice that it's there. You may even forget about it yourself unless something happens to your pet.

After the microchip is installed, all you have to do is go to the microchip website and fill in your contact information. Each chip holds a unique code number, and when workers at shelters and other facilities use the code reader looking for chips, they'll find your code. A quick look online will allow them to find your contact information and get in touch with you to help reunite your pet with her family. It's important that you keep the information online current, updating it every time you move or get a new phone number or email address. This will ensure that rescue workers have the right contact information when your pet is found.
