Does your pup or feline try to weasel out the door every time you open it to make an escape attempt? Do they occasionally stray away during outings? The fact is, there are times when our furry friends want to embrace their ‘wild side’ in the great outdoors and they get lost. However, a small enclosed unit known as a radio-frequency identification device, or pet microchipping implant, can come to the rescue when pets become displaced. We have two convenient locations on Staten Island to provide your pet with this quick in-office procedure.
It is estimated that 30 to 50 percent more cats and dogs respectively are returned to their owners thanks to pet microchipping. The implantation process of RFID pet microchipping devices are comparable to getting a vaccination, so it’s a pain-free process that results in your pet having a scannable neck implant that helps you get reconnected with your pet if they get lost. All of your information is completely secure, and when any vet or shelter scans your pet looking for a chip, all they see is non-personal information that a private database can process to help the appropriate persons notify you that your pet has been found.
There is no need for anesthesia or lab tests prior to inserting the rice-sized RFID device, which literally takes seconds for our vet to perform. These devices don’t get lost or fall off like collars often do, so they offer a second method of pet relocation when pets go astray. Pets can typically get microchips around four weeks of age, and these devices are typically maintenance-free and last the lifespan of your pet.
We have two convenient locations to give you and your pet the best service possible. Contact Animal Health Veterinary Group on Castleton Ave at 718-448-3680 or Animal Health Group on the Boulevard on Staten Island at 718-980-6491 to schedule your appointment for pet microchipping today. Our esteemed veterinarian teams look forward to meeting you and your pet and helping to ensure that you can live a long and happy life together with this confidential, affordable and convenient pet location device.
