Shiloh Veterinary Hospital recommends microchipping every dog and cat. The microchip is tiny, the size of a grain of rice, which we place between your pet’s shoulder blades and under the skin. That microchip is encoded with unique a unique number and information about your pet. Once registered, it contains your contact information.
We can microchip your dog or cat during any routine visit; it is a simple procedure and no anesthetic is required. We can also scan them to see if they already have a microchip.
We use a microchipping system that is used by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the world. In the event your pet is ever are separated from you, it may be your only means of being reunited with them.
You can also use the Pet Microchip Lookup web site to find a pet's owners based on the microchip number, independent of the microchipping company.
