Have a cat that’s overly curious? A dog that’s a known squirrel chaser? Make sure your pet can always get home to you with the placement of a microchip!
Dog and cat microchipping is a very quick, painless procedure. The best part about the whole process is that the use of anesthesia is not needed! Thus, this simple procedure is also very safe in regards to your pet’s health. Much like a tattoo used by shelters, a microchip is a small identification device about the size of a grain of rice. This chip is implanted underneath your pet’s skin, and contains a number that is unique to your pet. If your pet is ever lost and brought to us, we can scan with our microchip scanner and find the number. With this number, we are able to contact the microchip provider and contact you.
At Boca Veterinary Clinic, we use HomeAgain microchips. Their product is very easy to implant, and has advanced anti-slip technology. The anti-slip technology helps the chip from moving around under the skin. Additionally, the HomeAgain microchip is also one of the safest implantations used. We use internationally recognized microchips allowing easier international travel for your pet. If you are planning on traveling please inform us to make sure everything is up to date.
We microchip all cats when they are spayed or neutered, as per palm beach county regulations. We can also microchip cats or dogs at any appointment.
How it works?
The implantation happens in one swift step: The chip is located inside of a sterile applicator and inserted under your pet’s skin. No more tools required, and the entire process is sterile!
