Animal Health Care uses the HomeAgain Microchip that meets all International Standards. 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. It involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a grain 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 taken to an animal control facility or humane society, they will scan your pet for a microchip and when found then they can contact you. The scanner is similar to scanners found in the grocery store.
We advise you to use this method of identification PLUS a collar and ID tag on your pet.
