What would you do if your pet ran away from home?
Did you know that every year millions of pets wander away from home or otherwise get lost? Many of these pets find their way to local shelters and rescue organizations, but without microchipping, the chance of you finding your pet is significantly reduced. Implanting your pet with a microchip and maintaining an up to date microchip profile is the single best way to guarantee safe return of any runaway or escaped pet.
Leesville Animal Hospital utilizes the Home Again microchipping system. This system helps to make sure that, should your pet go missing and be found by any individual or organization with a microchip reader, they will be back in your loving arms before you know it!
What is the Home Again Microchip?
The Home Again microchip is a small chip that is about the size of a grain of rice. This chip carries a unique identifying number which is registered to your pet at the time of implantation. Your personal information is then attached to that microchip number to ensure that should your pet go missing and their microchip is scanned, you will be contacted right away!
Does Microchip Implantation Hurt?
As we mentioned above, the Home Again microchip is about the same size as a grain of rice. This tiny chip is implanted between your pet's shoulder blades in a quick and painless procedure that resembles a vaccination injection.
Other Helpful Home Again Microchip Information
Here at Leesville Animal Hospital, we always encourage our clients to regularly update their pet's Home Again microchip profile information online. This makes sure that your contact information is up to date should your pet's microchip be scanned.
Additionally, we always recommend having your pet's microchip scanned periodically to ensure that it remains in place and functional. You can ask any one of our staff or veterinarians to do this for you!
