Microchip Identification

Montreal Road Animal Hospital

Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves the placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection. If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, the humane society will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet. This is a one-time permanent way of identifying your pet, but you can change your information (i.e. address, phone number, etc.) at any time without having to re-microchip. We have reunited many pet owners with their pets over the years using this microchip information.
