Microchipping is a simple and effective way to ensure that your pet can be identified and returned to you if they ever become lost.
At Animal Clinic of the Ozarks, we offer pet microchipping in Topeka to help give you peace of mind.
The microchip itself is a tiny device that’s about the size of a grain of rice. It’s inserted just beneath your pet’s skin, usually between their shoulder blades. The microchip contains a unique ID number that can be read by a scanner, and that number is linked to your contact information in a database.
If your pet ever becomes lost and is found by someone else, a veterinarian, or an animal shelter, they can scan the microchip to identify your pet and retrieve your contact information from the database. This makes it much easier to reunite you with your furry friend.
Microchipping is a quick and painless procedure that can be done during a routine visit to our hospital. We recommend that all pets be microchipped to help ensure their safety and protection.
