No pet parent ever wants to imagine a scenario in which they become separated from their animal companion. Unfortunately, these things happen. The most effective way to keep your best friend safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as collars and tags, simply cannot.
A microchip is a teeny device encrypted with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact information is stored. Should your pet ever become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local animal shelter or veterinary clinic. The information gathered can then be used to help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.
Microchip implantation is fast and easy. The process is completed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the chip will remain safely under your companion’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what might happen to your pet if you become separated.
Many pet owners are surprised to learn that microchipping is incredibly affordable. Cross Creek Animal Hospital offers this service for a nominal charge. It can be performed either during a wellness visit, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choice.
Don’t take chances with your best friend’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Cross Creek Animal Hospital to learn more.
