Pet Microchipping in Newtown
Help Your Pet Get Home Safely
Every year, lost pets are reunited with their families because of microchips. Microchips for dogs and cats provide the best form of identification.
Microchipping is a simple procedure. One of our veterinarians will simply inject the microchip – which is only the size of a grain of rice – beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Only a local topical anesthetic is needed and your pet will not feel more than a minor pinch.
The microchip is not battery powered, so it will never “die” or need to be replaced. Should your pet run away or become lost, any shelter or veterinarian who finds them can scan for their microchip. The microchip will share your contact information so that your pet can be returned to you quickly.
If you are interested in getting your pet microchipped in Newtown, our Sycamore Veterinary Hospital veterinarians would be happy to answer your questions and address any concerns you have.
