Pet microchipping is a simple and effective way to provide permanent identification for your beloved pet. At Paws of the Rockies Animal Hospital, we offer safe and reliable microchipping services for dogs of all ages and breeds. A microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted just beneath the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. This tiny device contains a unique identification code that can be scanned by veterinary professionals, animal shelters, and rescue organizations.

Benefits of Pet Microchipping

Microchipping your dog provides numerous benefits, including:

  • Permanent Identification: Unlike collars and tags that can get lost or removed, a microchip provides permanent identification for your pet.
  • Increased Chance of Reunion: In the unfortunate event that your pet goes missing, a microchip significantly increases the likelihood of a reunion. Veterinary hospitals, shelters, and rescue organizations across the country have scanners to detect microchips and reunite lost pets with their owners.
  • 24/7 Access to Registration: Your pet’s unique identification code is registered with a national recovery database, accessible 24/7 by phone. This ensures that your contact information is readily available to facilitate a quick reunion.
  • Peace of Mind: Microchipping offers peace of mind, knowing that even if your pet loses their collar or tags, they still have a reliable form of identification.

When Should You Consider Microchipping Your Dog?

Microchipping is suitable for dogs of all ages and breeds. We recommend considering microchipping for your dog:

  • As part of their routine veterinary care, regardless of age.
  • Before traveling or moving to a new area, as a precautionary measure.
  • If your dog spends time outdoors or is prone to wandering.
  • Before attending events or activities where your dog may be at risk of getting lost.
