Pet Microchipping in Washougal, WA

Microchipping is one of the simplest ways you can protect your pet from being separated from you. During the procedure, our experienced veterinarians use modern technology to implant a tiny microchip under your pet’s skin, providing a permanent form of identification that can help reunite you with your pet if they ever get lost.

What is Pet Microchipping?

Pet microchipping is a simple and safe procedure that involves implanting a small microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, under your pet’s skin. This microchip contains a unique identification number that can be scanned by a vet or animal shelter if your pet is found. The information linked to the microchip, such as your contact details, can then be used to reunite you with your pet.

Benefits of Pet Microchipping

  • Permanent Identification: Unlike collars and tags, which can fall off or be removed, a microchip provides a permanent form of identification for your pet.
  • Quick and Painless Procedure: The microchipping procedure is quick, safe, and relatively painless for your pet, similar to a routine vaccination.
  • Peace of Mind: Microchipping provides you with peace of mind, knowing that your pet has a better chance of being reunited with you if they ever become lost.

When to Consider Pet Microchipping

Microchipping is recommended for all pets. Even if your pet primarily stays indoors, they can still escape or get lost, and a microchip may serve as your only lifeline to finding them again.

This precaution is especially important for pets that:

  • Have a tendency to wander or escape
  • Travel frequently with their owners
  • Are valuable breeds or have sentimental value
