Microchipping in Park City provides pet owners with peace of mind that their furry family members can be safely returned if they go astray. Pet tags can be scanned by an animal control officer, veterinarian, or other animal care provider. The information found in the database associated with the microchip ensures your pet will be returned safely to you.
But did you know that pet chipping is also a great way to store your pet’s medical records? That’s because all of their medical history can be securely stored using registration databases accessible through a microchip code. This is a great way to store information for quick reference if you plan on moving in the future.
A microchip is a tiny electronic chip in a glass tube that looks like a grain of rice. It is inserted under the skin of a pet using a hypodermic needle. Once the microchip is inserted, it will not need to be removed or replaced. Each microchip contains a unique personal identification number. This number will be linked to a database that includes your personal contact information to be accessed in case your pet is found after being lost or stolen. It is most important to keep the contact information associated with your pet's microchip updated if it changes.
When you bring your pet for microchipping at your vets in Park City, the procedure takes just a few minutes. This is not a surgical procedure, and general anesthesia is not required. However, if your pet is getting a surgical procedure, such as spay or neuter, we can insert the microchip at the same time.
Once your pet is microchipped by veterinarians in Park City, UT, you will need to register their chip identification number. There are several databases that are associated with pet chipping including 24PetWatch, EIDAP, InfoPet, and AKC Companion Animal Recovery. We help you choose the right database, which is typically associated with your brand of pet chip when you get microchipping at White Pine Veterinary Clinic. The purpose of the database you use is to store the information needed via the chip to find lost pets.
