The Benefits of Pet Microchipping

A runaway pet is every pet owner’s worst nightmare. This is why many people opt to microchip their pet. Microchipping is a pain-free, electronic method of identification for your pet. At Mission Veterinary Clinic and Animal Emergency Hospital in Granada Hills, CA, we provide pet microchipping to ensure you can always be reunited with your pet. Here are some of the benefits of microchipping.

What Are the Benefits of Pet Microchipping?

Microchips are permanent forms of identification for your pet. Tags and collars tend to fade over time, or they can fall off. Also, microchips cannot be tampered with if someone attempts to steal your pet, since the chips are placed under the skin. Microchips are not painful for your pet, and our veterinarian can perform the procedure quickly without anesthesia. Microchips generally will never need to be replaced during your pet's lifetime. The information stored on the microchip is a unique identification number that ensures your personal information is safe. Only the owner of the microchip can change the number after completing several security checks.

Ensure Your Microchip Is Up to Date

Microchips are very effective at returning lost animals to their owners. However, it's important to ensure that your information is updated should you move or change your telephone number. You'll also need to make sure your microchip is registered.
