Easy Identification

Microchipping is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure that your pet can be easily identified and returned to you in case they ever get lost. At Rockwall Veterinary Hospital, we recommend microchipping as the most reliable method for permanent pet identification.

A microchip is a tiny electronic device, roughly the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted just under your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. This procedure is quick and causes minimal discomfort, similar to a routine vaccination. Each microchip contains a unique ID number that is registered in a national pet recovery database. This number links directly to your contact information and is essential for reuniting lost pets with their owners.

Once your pet is microchipped, we provide you with all the necessary information to register your pet online or through a mail-in application. It’s crucial to keep your contact information up to date in the database to ensure that if your pet is ever lost, the microchip can serve its purpose effectively.

Microchipping Benefits

Microchipping offers a permanent solution that does not fade or fall off like collars and tags can. If your pet is found and taken to a shelter or veterinary clinic, a quick scan of the microchip can help identify them and bring them safely back home. The peace of mind that comes with microchipping is invaluable—knowing that your pet has the best chance of being returned to you, even if they wander far from home.

We encourage all pet owners to consider this important step in protecting their beloved animals. At Rockwall Veterinary Hospital, our team is here to answer any questions you might have about the microchipping process and to assist you in ensuring your pet’s safety and your peace of mind.
