Microchipping is an extraordinary type of technology that is growing in use year after year. It is a form of identification for your pet that extends countrywide. Shallowford Animal Hospital not only participates in this program, but recommends it to all pet owners in cases of separation. A microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is inserted painlessly under your pet’s skin. This chip contains your pet’s name, your information such as name and address and also the information for Shallowford. If your pet is found and taken to a participating rescue or veterinary clinic, they will first scan the animal and if your microchip is found, they will contact you to set up a speedy reunion. Don’t let your pet run the risk of being lost forever--have a microchip placed today!
