When it comes to ensuring the safety and security of your beloved pet, microchipping is an essential step. At Yorkshire Animal Hospital, we offer reliable and efficient microchipping services designed to provide you with peace of mind.
How Is a Microchip Placed?
Our microchipping procedure is conducted with utmost care and precision. This safe and minimally invasive process involves implanting a tiny microchip just beneath your pet’s skin. Similar to receiving vaccinations, the procedure is quick and causes minimal discomfort for your pet.
Why Are Microchips Important?
While it is always recommended to attach an ID tag to your pet’s collar, accidents can happen, and collars can be lost. Microchipping offers an additional layer of protection, serving as a permanent and reliable form of identification for your pet. In the unfortunate event that your pet goes missing or gets separated from you, the microchip significantly increases the chances of a swift reunion. Our team will also help facilitate your microchip registration with your up-to-date contact information.
Our veterinary hospital is equipped with a state-of-the-art handheld microchip scanner. This advanced scanning device emits a low-frequency radio wave that detects and reads the microchip implanted in your pet. When the scanner detects a microchip, it immediately transmits the unique ID number associated with your pet. With this information, we can quickly retrieve your contact details and reach out to you, ensuring a prompt reunion with your furry companion.
