Microchipping for Pets

A permanent ID for cats and dogs to increase their chances of being reunited with their loved ones.

Collars and tattoos are great but they can degrade, get lost, and fade over time. Microchips are your safest bet when it comes to finding and identifying your lost pet. Drop us a line at 519-969-7390 to learn more.

What is a pet microchip?

We can embed your contact information and your cat or dog's vital health details in these miniscule chips. They are placed inside your pet, typically in between their shoulder blades. Other veterinary hospitals and shelters can scan the chips and obtain your contact info. Therefore, they can reach out to you if your pet gets lost and they find them.

How long do microchips last?

Chips are designed to last throughout your furry family member's lifetime. Just the size of a single grain of rice, they are fully compatible with your pet's body and defects are incredibly rare. We recommend checking the microchips every few years to check for any damage – this is something that we can do for you during a clinic appointment. Also, please notify us right away if your contact info changes so we can help you update the info in the microchip.
