Microchipping

If you're a pet owner, then you can know just how important it is to keep your pet safe and one of the best ways to do that is by microchipping them. Microchipping is a process where a small chip is implanted under your pet's skin. This chip contains an identification number that is unique to your pet.

Here at South Federal Animal Hospital in Fort Lauderdale, FL, we understand the importance of pet microchipping and that's why we're more than happy to share it with you. Here's why microchipping is important for your pet.

What Are Pet Microchips?

A pet microchip is a tiny chip about the size of a grain of rice. It contains an identification number that can be read by a scanner. The scanner is passed over the pet's shoulder blades. If the pet has a microchip, the scanner will beep and display the pet's ID number. This number is then used to look up the pet's owner in a pet microchip registry.

Microchips are safe and easy to insert. They do not require surgery and they can be inserted by a veterinarian on our team during your pets routine visit. Microchips are permanent, and they should last your pet's lifetime.

What Is the Importance of Pet Microchipping?

There are many reasons why microchipping your pet is important. Some of them include:

Helps reunite lost pets with their owners: If your pet runs away or gets lost, the chances of them being found and returned to you are much higher if they have a microchip. Without a microchip, it's not only hard to locate your pet, but also hard for anyone who finds it to trace it back to you.

Helps prove pet ownership: The microchip can help to prove ownership of your pet. If there is ever any question as to who the rightful owner of a pet is, a microchip can quickly and easily settle the matter.

Peace of mind for pet owners: Knowing that your pet has a microchip implant gives pet owners peace of mind. In the event that your pet goes missing, you'll know that there's a much higher chance of them being returned to you safe and sound.
