The Importance of Microchipping

At TLC Animal Hospital, we want to make it easy for El Paso pet owners to care for their furry friends. That’s why we offer microchip services designed to help you find your pet when they are lost. The process of microchipping your pet is vital for returning your lost pet home. It is also highly affordable and nearly painless. Here are a few reasons our veterinarian, Dr. Vicki Dashley, recommends you microchip your pet.

Microchips Help Your Pet Find Their Way Home

Each year, millions of pets end up in shelters after becoming lost. Those with microchips are returned home quickly and easily. Why? Pets can’t speak to tell you where to take them home. However, a microchip can be scanned to reveal personal contact information, allowing veterinarians and animal control professionals to return pets home quickly and safely.

Quick and Painless Process

The process of having your pet microchipped is quick and painless. A needle and a special syringe are used to position the microchip between your cat or dog’s shoulder blades. The whole thing takes seconds to complete and most animals are not even phased by the process. All microchips are inserted in approximately the same place to make it easy to detect when checking on a lost pet.

Remember to Update Your Details

Updating your details if you move or get a new phone number is just as critical as having the microchip inserted in the first place. If your lost pet is found, you want to ensure that the veterinary clinic or animal shelter that finds them can get in touch with you. Usually, making sure the company has the right information is as simple as filling out a form online or making a quick phone call.

Your Trusted El Paso Veterinarian

Dr. Vicki Dashley and our entire veterinary team at TLC Animal Hospital look forward to helping your pet live a long and healthy life. For more information on microchipping or to schedule an appointment, call us at (915) 592-6200.
