Pet Microchipping

At Firestone Animal Hospital in Downey, we offer microchipping services to ensure that if your pets get lost, you will be able to reunite with them. We know that you have a strong bond with your pets and the last thing you want to imagine is them getting lost, never to be found again.

What Is Pet a Microchip?

A pet microchip is a small object placed under the skin of a pet. It has a unique number that can be detected using a scanner. The number is then recorded in an animal registry with its details and those of the pet’s owners.

Does Microchipping Cause Pain?

Microchipping can cause discomfort and mild pain to your pet during insertion, but it doesn’t last long. It only takes a few minutes for a veterinarian to place a microchip under a pet’s skin. Microchips are injected using a special needle, requiring no anesthesia or surgery during the process. After the procedure, you will go home with your pets and observe them. In case they develop a swelling or oozing, talk to your vet.

What Information Is Included in a Pet Microchip?

A pet microchip only stores an identification number. If a pet gets lost and someone takes it to a veterinary facility, the vet will use a microchip scanner to retrieve the identification number. That number will then be paired to contact information registered with a pet database so that the owners of the animal can be found.
