MICROCHIPPING

We use the HomeAgain Microchipping System. A HomeAgain microchip is permanent pet ID. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice (12mm) and is placed beneath the surface of your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. The chip has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a scanner over the shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchip's unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet.

Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure performed by your veterinarian. The placement is similar to giving a vaccination and takes only a few seconds. No anesthetic is required.

HomeAgain is the only dog & cat microchipping product on the market today that has the Bio-Bond patented anti-migration feature to help ensure that the microchip will stay in place so that it may be easily located and scanned. If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or veterinarian, they will scan the microchip to read its unique dog or cat ID code. This is the number used by HomeAgain to identify the pet and retrieve your contact information, which is used to contact you and reunite you with your pet.

Testimonial

  • "I am moved beyond words for the staff at Lancaster Animal Clinic! They have gone above and beyond helping me with the feral cats I inherited when my father in law passed away. I'm amazed at the extend of care they provide. They genuinely have a passion and love for what they do and the animals that come into their care. I am forever grateful for them. They have totally won me over!"
