One in three pets will get lost in their lifetime, and only 17% of dogs and 2% of lost cats will find their way back to their owners. Implanting a microchip will help give your pet the best chance of being identified should he/she ever become lost. Unlike collars, a HomeAgain microchip is a permanent method of identification.
When a lost pet is found, any animal hospital, shelter, or humane society should use a handheld microchip scanner to read your pet’s unique microchip ID number. The veterinarian or shelter then contacts the HomeAgain database. The database will match the unique ID number to your name and phone number.
The HomeAgain microchip is the size of a grain of rice. It is implanted under the skin between the shoulder blades of your dog or cat. The process takes only a few seconds and is virtually painless.
Your pet can be microchipped at any point during its life. We frequently perform the procedure while your pet is under anesthesia for a Spay or Neuter. Once your pet is microchipped, we send in your information to HomeAgain to get you enrolled.
