Microchipping is a permanent form of identification for your pet. It is safe and fairly inexpensive. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is inserted underneath the pet’s skin with a syringe.
Our hospital use Home Again Micropchips which are recognized worldwide. The initial charge covers the application and registration for the life of the pet in the National Pet Recovery Database. There are bonus benefits for the first year as well. If an owner wishes to continue the bonus benefits after the first year, they require an annual renewal fee. Bonus benefits include:
24/7 Lost pet Specialists – Home Again specialists will send out lost pet alerts and they will provide you with a list of animal shelters and veterinarians in your area.
Rapid Lost Pet Alerts and Personalized Lost Pet Posters – Lost pet alerts are rapidly sent out to Home Again Pet Network of veterinarians, shelters, and pet rescuers in the area.
24/7 Emergency Pet Hotline (a $65 value per call) – In times of an emergency, a call may be placed to ASPCA veterinarians.
Found Pet Travel Assistance – Up to $ 500 travel expenses are provided to fly your pet back home.
