Emergency Care: Please call our main telephone number for instructions for after-hour emergencies or see our Emergencies Page

Microchip Pet Identification: We offer microchip identification as a means of permanent identification for your pet. We use the HomeAgain microchip. Many clients elect to microchip when their animal is spayed or neutered. A tiny microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is implanted between the animal’s shoulder blades.

This procedure takes just seconds and is relatively painless, and is recommended for companion pets of all species, breeds and ages. Individual numbers are registered in the national database managed by the HomeAgain Pet Recovery Service. When a lost pet (cat, dog, etc.) arrives at a participating animal shelter or veterinarian clinic, a Universal Scanner is used to identify the unique encoded number on the implanted microchip and the owner is identified and contacted immediately.
