Microchipping For Cats and Dogs in Scotts Valley
As a pet owner, keeping your furry friend safe and sound is at the top of your priority list. With so many animals getting lost each year, knowing where your beloved cat or dog is after being lost is priceless. Our compassionate, animal-loving team at Mt. Hermon Veterinary Clinic is dedicated to making sure all of Scotts Valley’s pets are accounted for. We make it easy to microchip your dog or cat by offering same-day, outpatient microchipping services.
With over 24 years in the veterinary world, we have perfected the art of quick and painless implantation. Using a hypodermic needle, the tiny microchip containing its own unique digital code is embedded in between your pet’s shoulder blades. Once registered, any veterinary clinic is able to scan your animal’s microchip and locate your contact information almost instantaneously.
Benefits of Getting Your Pet Chipped
While the peace of mind that you receive knowing that your pet can be found when lost is invaluable, there are many advantages to having us microchip your cat or dog. Some of these include:
- It cannot be felt like a bulky collar because it is approximately the size of a grain of rice
- A pet microchip is more reliable than a collar that can be damaged or lost
- A microchip for your dog is inexpensive, painless and fast
With the list of benefits greatly outweighing the minimal side effects, it’s easy to see why getting your pet microchipped is the only way to go.
