No pet parent ever wants to imagine a scenario in which their animal companion gets lost. Unfortunately, things happen that are sometimes beyond our control. The best way to keep your loved one safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.
A microchip is a tiny device encrypted with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should your four-legged family member become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered from this scan can then be used to help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.
Implanting a microchip is fast, simple and virtually painless. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the microchip will remain safely under the skin for the rest of your pet’s life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what will happen should you and your pet become separated.
Many pet parents are surprised to learn that microchip implantation is incredibly affordable. Billings Animal Hospital offers this service for a minimal charge. The procedure can be performed either during a wellness visit, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choice.
Don’t take chances with your loved one’s safety. Invest in permanent identification today. Contact Billings Animal Hospital to learn more.
