Helping Pets Find Their Way Home

Losing your precious pet is likely one of your biggest fears. Unfortunately, dogs and cats disappear every day. No matter how responsible and careful you are, it takes just seconds for disaster to strike. If your pet ever runs away or wanders a bit too far from home and gets lost, they are much more likely to be returned to you if they are microchipped. Here at Sabal Chase Animal Clinic, we perform pet microchipping in Kendall and strongly recommend this simple procedure for nearly all of our patients.

How It Works

The process of microchipping a pet takes just a few seconds. And despite common misconceptions, a microchip is not a GPS tracking device. Instead, the chip serves as a permanent form of identification. A microchip is about the same size as a grain of rice and has a unique identification number. When registered, this identification number is linked to an online account containing your contact information.

If your pet gets lost and is brought to a vet’s office or shelter, a worker will scan them for a microchip. The scanner will bring up the chip’s identification number, which will then be used to look up your info. As long as the phone number in your account is correct, someone will contact you to reunite you with your furry friend.

Pet Microchipping in Kendall

Microchips are injected beneath the skin below your pet’s shoulder blades using a syringe. Since microchipping isn’t a surgical procedure, there is no need for anesthesia. Your pet can immediately resume their normal activities after leaving our office.

At Sabal Chase Animal Clinic, we perform microchipping for dogs and cats in Kendall and throughout Miami-Dade County. Contact us today to learn more or schedule your furry friend’s appointment for this potentially life-saving procedure.
