No pet parent ever wants to think about their animal companion becoming lost. Unfortunately, these things happen. The most effective way to keep your pet safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that conventional forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.
A microchip is a miniature device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should your pet become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or vet clinic. The information gathered can then be used to help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.
The microchipping process is fast, easy and virtually painless. The procedure is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the microchip will remain safely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what will happen to your pet should you ever become separated.
Many of our clients are pleasantly surprised to learn that microchip implantation is incredibly affordable. Balfour Animal Hospital offers this service for a minimal charge. It can be performed during a wellness visit, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choosing.
Don’t take chances with your loved one’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Balfour Animal Hospital to learn more.
