Micro chipping is a wonderful thing you can do for your pet.
Pets that have microchips have a far greater chance of being reunited with their family when they get lost, or even stolen. According to the American Humane Association, only 22% of lost dogs overall were returned to their families, while the return-to-owner rate for micro chipped dogs was over 52%.
Microchips are approximately the size of a grain of rice and are inserted beneath an animal’s skin, between its shoulder blades. The process is painless and takes about 2 minutes. Each microchip has a unique identification number and contains contact information for the pet’s owner. A scanner is used to collect the information on the microchip once it has been inserted. A microchip provides a permanent means of identification for your pet.
Rabies vaccines are required for all cats and dogs. We are pleased to be able to provide Rabies vaccines, by appointment, to pets in the Hamilton/Burlington area living in low income homes for just $25.00.
In 2019 we implanted 238 microchips in dogs and cats, and vaccinated 599 pets against rabies at these clinics!
