Pet Microchipping in Mansfield

Keep Your Pet Safe with Microchips

Your pet might escape out the back door, or jump a fence. They might slip their leash or wander out of your back yard. They might not be able to find their way home again without your help. This is where microchips can be helpful.

Microchips are an implant about the size of a grain of rice which holds identification and contact information for your pet. This means that someone who can scan your pet for a microchip would be able to contact you to let you know they’ve been found! It’s standard practice in most veterinary hospitals to scan recovered pets for microchips. This helps return your pet to you sooner rather than later.

Benefits of microchipping your pet:

  • Microchips last for your pet’s entire life
  • Find your pet if they wander off or are separated from you
  • In the case of a natural disaster, your pet can be returned to you
  • Provide identification in case your pet is stolen
  • Microchips can contain information like health conditions or medication your pet takes

How We Implant a Microchip?

Microchips are tiny – about the size of a grain of rice – so implanting them is about as much pain as that of a vaccination. If you’re worried about your pet feeling pain during the implantation process, we can implant your pet’s microchip while they’re getting spayed or neutered.

Where are Microchips Placed?

Microchips are usually placed under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. Your pet’s body will usually bond to the chip within a day, though there’s a small chance that the chip may move from its original placement. Fortunately, with a scanner in hand, the chip will never get lost in your pet’s body.

Do Microchips Replace a Collar with Tags?

No – microchips should be used more like a backup option for identification, not the main way you identify your pet. In order to read a microchip, you need a special kind of scanner. People like animal control officers, animal shelters, and veterinary clinics should have scanners, but your next door neighbor won’t. Additionally, you have to make sure to keep your pet’s microchip registered and updated with current information. Otherwise, your pet’s microchip won’t be able to identify them properly.

I Have an Indoor Cat. Should I Still Get Her Microchipped?

Yes! Even if your cat doesn’t try to get out of your house, there are a multitude of reasons why you should microchip your cat. If there’s a natural disaster or a fire in your house, there’s a chance that your cat may be separated from you. If your cat is microchipped, you could be reunited much faster.
