We highly recommend pet microchipping at American Animal Hospital. Millions of dogs and cats get lost each year, and few make it back to their loving owners. A microchip can significantly increase a pet’s chances of returning home safe and sound, and it lasts for life.
If you’d like to get your pet microchipped, request an appointment today.
Is Microchipping Painful for Pets?
The microchip is inserted just under the skin and between the shoulder blades with a needle. Microchipping can be done at any time, and does not require any anesthesia as the discomfort is minimal. In fact, it should be no different for your pet than getting a vaccine.
At AAH, if you just need to come in for a microchipping appointment, you can see one of our technicians, who will insert the chip—no office visit required.
