Why should I Microchip my pet?
According to HomeAgain Microchip, 1 in 3 pets goes missing during its lifetime. Microchipping is a permanent, lifetime ID that links your pet to you. HomeAgain Microchip will maintain your pet’s ID code in their microchipped pet database.
We recommend microchipping your pet as a puppy or kitten, but there is no age limit! We can microchip a pet of any age.
How does it work?
Veterinarians and shelters have microchip readers. With a simple wave over the pets back, the microchip number is found. The microchip registry is then contacted.
Should your pet become lost, “lost pet” alerts and volunteer pet rescuers will be on the lookout for your pet. Should your pet arrive at a veterinary clinic or shelter, the lost pet alert will show up when the microchip is scanned.
Is it difficult to place the microchip?
Microchipping is easily done. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under the skin, similarly to the way a vaccination is injected.
What if I move or what if my pet is rehomed?
After we microchip and register your pet with a HomeAgain, there is no cost for you to reregister your pet with its new owner or a new address if you have moved.
I just had my pet microchipped, what do I do now?
Park Place Veterinary Hospital will digitally register your pet that day. Your job is to complete your pet’s profile in HomeAgain and upload your pet’s photo. You can enter an alternate contact information and read over the HomeAgain member benefits. https://www.homeagain.com/
