No loving pet parent ever wants to imagine a scenario in which their four-legged family member becomes lost. Unfortunately, accidents happen. The best way to keep your companion safe is by planning ahead. Microchip identification with Ashton Animal Hospital provides convenient, affordable, permanent protection and peace of mind that standard forms of ID, such as collars and tags, cannot.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is a small device encoded with a number that corresponds to a database where your contact details are stored. Should your pet become separated from you, the chip can be scanned at any local shelter or vet clinic. The information gathered can then be used to help reunite you both safely for a happy ending.

Does microchipping hurt?

Microchip implantation is fast, easy and virtually painless. The process is performed using a local anesthetic for the comfort of your pet. Once implanted, the chip will remain securely under your pet’s skin for the rest of his or her life. You’ll never have to do it again. More importantly, you’ll never have to worry about what will happen if you and your pet ever become separated.

Is microchipping expensive?

Many of our clients are surprised to learn that microchip implantation is incredibly affordable. Ashton Animal Hospital offers this convenient service for a minimal charge. It can be performed either during a wellness visit, while your companion is anesthetized for surgery, or at any other time of your choosing.

Don’t take chances with your best friend’s safety – invest in permanent identification today. Contact Ashton Animal Hospital to learn more.
