Pet Microchipping

Unlike a collar or tag, which can be lost, destroyed, or inadvertently placed on the wrong pet, a microchip is a permanent form of identification for your pet.

A microchip is implanted beneath your pet’s skin, between the shoulder blades, and is roughly the size and shape of a grain of rice. The implantation of a microchip is relatively safe and takes a few minutes. Each microchip is distinct and contains important details about your pet, like your name, address, and phone number. At Lakeside Veterinary Clinic, the pet owner is given a registration form to fill out before the microchip is implanted. When you register your pet’s microchip number, your pet is added to a nationwide database for pet recovery. Everywhere in the nation, there are veterinary clinics, animal shelters, and animal control facilities with specialized electronic scanners that can find the microchip and read the identifying number.
