Pet Microchip Services in Powell, OH

At Animal Hospital of Shawnee Hills, we strongly advocate for microchipping pets, a simple yet profoundly impactful procedure that can make a world of difference in your pet’s life. Microchipping is a straightforward process that can be completed during a quick technical appointment. The microchip (no larger than a grain of rice) is injected between the pet’s shoulder blades, providing a permanent form of identification that can last a lifetime. Unlike collars or tags that can break or become lost, microchips offer a reliable way to reunite lost pets with their owners. Our hospital uses HomeAgain microchips, one of the leading brands in pet recovery services, ensuring that your pet benefits from the latest in microchip technology.

The importance of microchipping cannot be overstated. Every year, millions of pets go missing, and the sad reality is that without identification, many never return home. Microchipping offers a secure, unalterable form of identification that can significantly increase the chances of a lost pet being safely returned to its family. When a lost pet is found and brought to a veterinarian or animal shelter, a quick scan of the microchip reveals the owner’s contact information, facilitating a joyful reunion. By choosing to microchip your pet at the Animal Hospital of Shawnee Hills, you’re taking a crucial step towards safeguarding your beloved companion.

Our microchipping service includes not just the implantation of the HomeAgain microchip, but also the first year of registration. This initial registration is vital, as it connects your contact information to your pet’s unique microchip number, ensuring you can be reached quickly if your pet is found. Even if you decide not to maintain the HomeAgain membership after the first year, rest assured that your contact information will remain linked to your pet’s microchip indefinitely. HomeAgain membership offers additional benefits, including access to a national pet recovery database, travel assistance for found pets, and a 24/7 emergency medical hotline, among others. You can learn more about these services on the HomeAgain website.

Choosing to microchip your pet at Animal Hospital of Shawnee Hills is a decision that offers peace of mind. It’s an easy, affordable procedure that can mean the difference between losing your pet forever and having them safely returned to you. Our team is dedicated to providing your pet with the highest level of care, and we believe that includes offering services like microchipping that can protect your pet throughout their life.
