Check That Chip!

National Check the Chip Day is August 15th, and to help get more pets “chipped”, we’re offering $15 OFF microchips all month long!

We also want to take this opportunity to share more information on why microchipping is so important:

  • Unlike collars and tags, microchips cannot fall off and get lost. It’s with your pet for life.
  • Microchipping a pet is inexpensive and super simple: a veterinary technician injects the tiny chip between your pet’s shoulder blades. Because the chip is encased in hypoallergenic, bio-friendly glass, allergic reactions to chips are incredibly rare.
  • Most animal shelters and veterinary hospitals have chip scanners now, so microchips make it incredibly easy to get lost pets the help they need.

But remember: a microchip is only useful if your contact information is updated. Make sure anytime you move, you update your information with the microchip registry. There may be a fee associated with re-registering a chip, but it’s usually small and varies depending on the registration company.

Give your pets a better chance of finding their way home if they’re lost! Schedule an appointment by calling us at (713) 999-6095.
