Pet Microchipping in Fort Lauderdale
What Is a Microchip?
A microchip is a tiny device that can be inserted between the pet's shoulder blades using a syringe. It contains an identification number that will be registered to you, the owner. This feature will provide you with irrefutable proof that your pet belongs to you. If ever someone were to try to claim ownership of your pet, a microchip will be a crucial factor in having them returned to you.
The unfortunate reality is that pets frequently can get lost or even stolen. When this happens, it is devastating. A simple microchip can make the difference of getting your pet back or never seeing him/her again. DPC Veterinary Hospital is proud to offer microchip implantation 7-days a week. Your pet's doctor will insert the chip and the front desk staff will assist you in registering your microchip on the premises. Your pet will be registered instantly!
Book a pet microchip appointment by calling us at (954) 516-1654 or filling out our online form.
How Does the Microchip Work?
Through the use of a scanner, the chip which is coded with an identifying number will be matched up to a national database. The database will include your contact information. The service provider will contact you and let you know where your loved one has been found. The microchip does not act as a GPS device, but rather will be traceable anywhere that a microchip scanner is used – the humane society, animal control, shelters, veterinary clinics, and some pet stores.
Remember! It is important to always keep your microchip registration information as current as possible. If you should move, change your name, or update your phone numbers it is important to update the microchip company so that your pet's registration information is kept as up to date as possible.
