It only takes a second for your pet to slip out the door of your home and never return. Although many pet owners put their contact information on a tag and attach it to a collar, the collar can easily come off, or someone could remove it when trying to steal your pet. If your pet has a microchip, a veterinarian can scan the chip for your contact information and let you know where to find your lost pet.

What to know about the microchip ID in Danville, CA

  • The procedure is no more painful than a routine vaccination.
  • Our veterinarian will place the microchip in the loose skin just below the shoulder blade.
  • The microchip contains a unique identification number that you must register with the national lost pet registry. Any veterinarian can scan the chip and notify you.
  • A microchip is not a Global Positioning System (GPS).
