At Redlands Pet Clinic, we have provided residents of Grand Junction, CO, with reliable pet care services for many years. Many of our patients reach out to us for the first time looking to learn more about microchipping. Read on to learn more about the microchipping procedure and the benefits associated with it.
The process of microchipping pets takes a short time and is painless. The microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is inserted into the pet. It is a simple procedure that can be done on pets that have reached 12 weeks of age.
There are several benefits associated with microchipping. The benefit of the microchip comes into play when a pet is lost. When a microchip is scanned, it reveals contact information that was registered when the microchip was inserted. If someone finds your lost pet, they can contact a veterinarian to have the microchip scanned to find out who the pet belongs to.
If the pet is taken to an animal shelter or if it is picked up by animal control and taken to a shelter, it will be scanned to determine if it has a microchip. The scanned information allows the shelter's staff to contact rightful owners and let them know where their pet is and the steps to take to get it home again.
