Rabies Vaccines & Microchips

Microchip

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.

We offer microchipping by appointment for $35.00.

Rabies Vaccine

Rabies vaccines are required by law for all cats and dogs in the city of Hamilton.

We are currently not offering Rabies vaccines.  We will update this page as soon as that service resumes.  If your pet is due for a vaccine we would encourage you to visit a local veterinarian.

In 2019 we implanted 238 microchips in dogs and cats, and vaccinated 599 pets against rabies at our onsite clinic!
