Microchips

Why Microchip?

 

Accidents happen.  Make sure your pet finds their way home if they become lost. Microchipping your best friend is one of the safest ways to protect your pet during an emergency.

 

How does a Microchip work?

 

A microchip is a chip about the size of a grain of rice.  We implant the chip between the shoulder blades.  This can be done at anytime. In the office or during the time of spay and neuter. The chip has a unique identification number with all of your contact information linked to it.

 

If your pet is found and brought to a shelter or vets office, they will be scanned with a hand held scanner.  The microchipping company is contacted to retrieve your information.

 

Foxfield uses AVID Microchips.  It is important to always remember to update your microchip if you move or change a phone number.
