Microchipping is a quick, simple procedure in which a microchip is injected underneath your pet’s skin. The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is inserted in the shoulder blade area. The microchip is encoded with an alphanumeric identifier that is unique to your pet. Microchipping can be done at any age but is commonly performed during spay or neuter surgical visits.
Benefits of getting your pet microchipped:
- Often required for the identification of pets during travel.
- Permanent, unlike collars they cannot be removed if your pet is lost, stolen, or accidentally escapes.
- Lasts the lifetime of your pet.
- A most effective way to ensure your pet is returned to you.
The microchip fee is $45.00 which includes the registration to the HomeAgain National Recovery Database.
- Annual fecal parasite test $29.00
- A canine heartworm test is $48.00 and a monthly preventative (varies by weight).
