Pet Microchipping in Happy Valley, OR

Fern Hill Veterinary Care

Pet Microchipping

When a pet goes missing, a microchip can greatly boost the chances of them being found. The staff at Fern Hill Veterinary Care highly recommends this simple and quick procedure.

A little microchip is implanted between the dog’s or cat’s shoulder blades (other animals such as horses, ferrets, and most mammals can be microchipped too). A scanner can read the microchip’s identifying number, which can be read by a scanner. The chip can be scanned at a veterinarian’s office or an animal shelter to determine who owns the animal.
When your pet is microchipped, your veterinarian will ask for your current contact information, which will be entered into a national database. Your name, address, and phone number will be permanently linked to the unique 15-digit number on your pet’s microchip, allowing you to track down your pet if it goes missing.
