Welcome to Our Pet Microchipping Services
Welcome to our pet microchipping services at West Valley Humane Society. Microchipping is a simple yet vital step in safeguarding your beloved pets. We’re here to explain what microchipping is, how it works, and why it’s crucial for your furry companions.
What is a Microchip?
A microchip is a tiny electronic device, roughly the size of a grain of rice. When a scanner is passed over the chip’s location, it activates and transmits a unique identification number. This number can be used to connect a lost pet with its owner.
The Microchipping Process
The microchip is gently injected under your pet’s skin using a hypodermic needle. This process is no more painful than a typical injection, though the needle is slightly larger. Microchips are routinely administered during vet visits or dedicated microchipping events, and they don’t require sedation. In some cases, they can be administered while your pet is asleep during a spay/neuter surgery.
Microchips used in pets contain only identification numbers. It’s important to note that they are not GPS devices and cannot track your pet’s location. However, some microchip registration databases offer the option to store additional medical information.
Why Microchipping Matters
Microchipping is a vital tool in reuniting lost pets with their owners. It provides an added layer of protection and safety for your furry family members, ensuring they can be identified and returned home if they ever go missing.
