Pet Microchipping

Microchips are tiny devices that provide a permanent, unalterable identifier for your dog or cat. We strongly recommend microchip implantation for all animals. These safe and inexpensive chips dramatically increase the chances of being reunited with a lost pet.

At Brookdale Animal Hospital, we can microchip your dog or cat during any routine office visit. It is a simple procedure similar to a vaccination, and no anesthesia is required. If your pet was rescued from a shelter or adopted from another owner, we can also perform a quick check to see if a chip has already been implanted.

Any pet found by a shelter can be scanned for a microchip. The identifier found in this device will allow you to be contacted quickly so that your pet can return home safely. In addition to performing recoveries, many chip manufacturers also have support services that will proactively search for pets as soon as they are reported missing, and are available 24/7.

The Pet Microchip Lookup web site is another helpful resource for locating owners of lost pets based on the microchip number that operates independently of microchipping companies.
