Home, Sweet Home: Microchipping Your Pet for a Safe Return

It may come as a surprise, but one in three pets will become lost in their lifetime. Even when seemingly infallible precautions are taken, it only takes a few seconds for a curious pet to see an opportunity and go roaming.

Your most reliable means of a safe return is through microchipping.

Microchipping is a Safe, Simple Procedure for Peace of Mind

Reading MicrochipAt South Auburn Veterinary Hospital, our microchipping procedure is safe, quick, and does not require anesthesia.

Microchipping involves the implantation of a tiny transponder, about that size of a grain of rice, between the shoulder blades. Once this nontoxic, non-allergenic chip is embedded, your pet will be able to be identified for a lifetime by his one-of-a-kind identification number.

Both the number and your contact information will remain on file on national animal identification registries.

Microchipping is now thought to be instrumental in thousands of pets being reunited with their families. If your pet has not been microchipped, we highly recommend this effective method of permanent identification.

We also have a microchip reader on-site should you find a lost pet. Contact us for more information.
