What is Microchipping?

Pet microchipping involves the insertion of a tiny, RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) chip under your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. This chip contains a unique identification number that is linked to your contact information. In the event that your pet goes missing, this identification number can be scanned by veterinary clinics, shelters, or animal control officers, helping reunite you with your pet quickly.

The Process

Our experienced veterinarians at Meridian Veterinary Clinic & Hospital performs pet microchipping with precision and care. The procedure is quick, virtually painless, and can be done during a routine veterinary visit. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, ensuring minimal discomfort for your pet.

Benefits of Microchipping

Peace of Mind: Knowing that your pet has a microchip provides peace of mind. In the unfortunate event that your pet gets lost, you increase the chances of a swift reunion.

Permanent Identification: Unlike collars and tags that can be lost or removed, a microchip offers a permanent form of identification for your pet.

Nationwide Accessibility: Microchip databases are accessible across the country, making it easier to locate your pet if they wander far from home.

Quick Reunions: Microchipped pets have a higher chance of being quickly identified and returned to their owners, reducing the stress and anxiety associated with a lost pet.

When is Microchipping Necessary?

Puppies and Kittens: Microchipping is recommended for young pets during their initial veterinary visits to ensure they are protected from an early age.

Adopted Pets: If you’ve recently adopted a pet, microchipping is a crucial step to safeguard your new family member.

Traveling or Moving: If you plan to travel or move with your pet microchipping is essential. It provides a reliable form of identification wherever you go.
