Pet Microchipping

One of our veterinarians simply injects a microchip, about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades.

Pet Microchipping

Microchipping for pets is a virtually painless, anesthesia-free procedure that takes just a few minutes from start to finish. Your pet will likely never even know that this tiny, grain-sized device has been inserted near his shoulder blades, just beneath the skin. Our Gem Veterinary Clinic veterinarian places a small chip inside a syringe and gently performs the implantation in seconds, and pets can resume normal activities immediately.

There are numerous benefits to microchipping pets, especially for those pets who are a bit timid or who are easily excitable. Some animals are prone to bolting out the door every time it opens, while others might run away out of fear from loud noises such as celebratory fireworks. Pet microchips nearly double an owner’s chances of being reunited with their furry friend. The cost of microchipping is typically less than the cost of a routine exam, so there’s no reason not to enjoy the security a chip provides.
