When it comes to identifying your pet after he or she becomes lost, one of the easiest things to do is to get your pet microchipped with our veterinarian at Magnolia Animal Hospital. A microchip is an easy, permanent form of identification that cannot fall off your pet.
Modern microchips have anti-migration technology that helps prevent the chip from moving to a different location under your pet’s skin. This helps the veterinarian or shelter or rescue worker locate the chip quickly and call the chip manufacturer to tell them that your pet has been found.
Many chip companies offer online databases where you can easily update your contact information when you move or change phone numbers. By keeping your information up-to-date, you are ensuring that you can be contacted when your pet is found.
When you notify your pet’s microchip manufacturer that your dog or cat has become lost, the company will send out fliers and alerts to every animal hospital, rescue, veterinarian and shelter withing a certain number of miles from where your pet was last seen. This helps get the word out so that people can be on the lookout for your lost pet.
Our veterinarian in Ocala FL offers pet microchips for dogs and cats. The process of inserting the chip involves using a sterile needle that is preloaded with the microchip. The needle is inserted just under your pet’s skin usually between his or her shoulder blades, and the injection is no more painful than receiving a vaccination. Once the chip is inserted, it will last the entire life of your pet.
