Plains Veterinary Hospital offers microchip identification as a means of permanent identification for your constant companion. Microchipping can be performed on an outpatient basis, and many clients elect to microchip when their animal is spayed or neutered. Our tiny microchips are the size of a grain of rice and are implanted between the animal's shoulder blades. This procedure takes just seconds and is relatively painless, and is recommended for companion pets of all species, breeds, and ages. Our clinic takes care of the registration process for you. When a lost pet (cat, dog, etc.) arrives at a participating animal shelter or veterinarian clinic, a universal scanner is used to identify the unique encoded number on the implanted microchip, and the owner is identified and contacted immediately.
Simple placement of the chip under the skin and between the shoulder blades is all it takes to implant the microchip. Many pets get lost and are never returned to their owners because they have no identification. Collars and tags can fall off or be removed. Don't let your pet become a statistic. Microchip your pet and relax knowing your pet could be identified and returned home if he/she ever becomes lost.
