Microchipping Your Pets with Our Veterinarian in Collierville
At Collierville Animal Clinic & Surgery Center, we work hard to protect your pets and reduce their risks as much as possible. Microchipping is a common, simple service that allows us to do just that. After your Collierville vet gives your dog or cat a microchip, your information will always be linked to them, making it much more difficult to get separated forever.
So, how does microchipping work, and why should you consider it for your pet? Here are some fast facts before you ask for a microchip for your pet.
How Microchipping Works
Microchips are tiny computer chips that can be scanned at any veterinarian’s office. These chips contain essential information about you and your pet – including your name, address, phone number, and any other identifying information you choose to add. These microchips are small enough to be injected under the skin during a simple outpatient procedure.
Our veterinarians usually insert microchips between the shoulder blades or behind the neck, where other vets can easily find and scan them. Once a microchip is underneath your pet’s skin, it will be there forever, transmitting a low-frequency signal that will always be linked to your contact information.
Why Your Pet Needs a Microchip
Whether you have a social, outdoorsy dog or an indoor-only cat, we recommend investing in a microchip. Unlike collars and tags, microchips cannot get lost – and unlike posters and flyers, microchips don’t wait for people to come across them.
Even if your pets stay inside – or stay on a leash at all times – it’s important to consider a microchip. All pets are at risk of getting lost or stolen, especially if you travel with your pets. Anything from an auto accident to a stressful move can result in an escape or accident that separates you from your beloved animals. We don’t want your family to be divided, because we understand how important your pets are. That’s why we make sure every microchip is firmly implanted and permanently linked to you and your family’s contact information. Every pet deserves a chance to go back home.
