Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often. At Pyramid Veterinary Hospital, we advocate the use of a tiny microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) inserted under the skin and between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to an injection and takes only a few seconds. No anesthetic is required. This microchip has a unique code that can be registered with your name /phone # / address. Should your pet become lost, animal controls and veterinary hospitals around the country have scanners that recognize the Microchip #. From there, the veterinary professional or animal control can contact the Microchip registration company and get you back with your pet!
