At Tri-County Veterinary Clinic, we are happy to offer HomeAgain microchips for your pets. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip (the size of a grain of rice) underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. It is a low-pain and relatively fast procedure that can be done while awake or while sedated for other routine procedures. The microchip becomes your pet’s unique, permanent ID that will never wear out.
Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. Thankfully, microchipping is a simple, safe, and effective way to promote your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost.
Other benefits to microchipping now include microchip pet feeders and microchip pet doors. These smart products can be programmed to respond to your pet’s unique ID, so they only open for your specific pet, keeping children, other pets, and other unwanted guests out.
You can request a microchip at your next appointment, or you can call us to schedule microchip placement at any time at (865) 577-2866.
