microchippingAt Moffitt Animal Clinic, we are happy to offer microchipping. 1 in 3 pets will go missing in their lifetime. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back home can be a helpless and hopeless feeling. It’s a unfortunately tragedy that happens all too often.

There is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and return should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip about the size of a grain of rice underneath your pet’s fur. It is a relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.

The microchip contains a unique string of numbers that is associated with your contact information when you register it. This can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can contact you and help get your beloved pet home. The microchip does not contain your personal contact information, nor does it track your pet’s location. It is important to keep your contact information up to date for this reason.

Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.

If you would like to see which company your pet’s microchip is registered with, you can click the Microchip Lookup logo below to enter the microchip number. If you don’t have your pet’s microchip number, we will be more than happy to scan your pet for the microchip upon request.
