South Philadelphia Veterinary Hospital For Microchipping Your Pet

Microchips are an extremely valuable tool that can help reunite a pet with their family when lost. A study by the Journal of American Veterinary Medicine found that 53% of returned strays were through the use of a microchip compared to 21.9% without them. As you can see, microchips do help return pets to homes and keep our loved “fur babies” with us for years to come. For more information about microchips or to schedule an appointment please contact our veterinary hospital.

Microchipping Your Pet South Philadelphia Veterinary Hospital

Microchips are small, cylindrical chips that are placed under the skin of your pet between the shoulder blades. The chip is about the size of a grain of rice and is no more painful than a typical injection although the needle is slightly larger. It only takes a few short seconds to implant the microchip. Implanting a microchip does not require sedation or anesthesia and is extremely affordable.
