Pet Micro-chip

Micro-Chip Service Details

Have you ever come across stories about missing pets in newspapers or online? The worry of a pet slipping out of the house or dashing from the backyard is a common concern. Fortunately, there’s a straightforward solution to alleviate this worry: a microchip. Placed under your pet’s skin, a microchip significantly enhances the chances of reuniting with your pet if they get lost. This small device, inserted painlessly with a needle, typically between the shoulder blades, contains a unique identification number that can be swiftly read by a scanner, facilitating a swift return to the owner. At GRAH in Kingston, we offer seamless microchipping services for pets in a quick and painless manner.

Once the microchip is implanted, it remains permanently in place and cannot be reprogrammed. It doesn’t store any sensitive information besides your pet’s unique ID number, registered with the manufacturer’s database, along with your emergency contact details. Scanners, used by veterinary clinics, animal shelters, and animal control departments, work in unison to track down your pet using this unique ID.

Traditionally, pet owners relied on information from their pet’s collar during emergencies. However, collars can come off or be easily removed by thieves. In contrast, a microchip is discreetly placed under your pet’s skin, ensuring it’s only accessible and removable by a trained veterinary professional. This tiny device can solely be read by an electronic scanner, revealing your pet’s individual ID number when scanned.

In Kingston, pet microchipping at GRAH serves as a reliable method to enhance pet safety and security, providing peace of mind to pet owners worried about their furry friends’ safety.

Historically, pet owners relied upon information contained on their pet’s collar to assist in the time of emergency. However, collars can often come off and thieves can easily remove them if so intentioned. Microchipping however is inserted just under your pet’s skin, which means that no one other than a trained veterinary professional can intentionally locate it, or remove it. The tiny microchip can only be read by an electronic scanner which will reveal the individual identification number of your pet when scanned.
