At MarketPlace Veterinary Hospital, in the vibrant community of El Dorado Hills, CA, we understand the deep bond between pets and their owners. In honor of Chip Your Pets Month, we’re dedicating our efforts to educate our community about the vital role of pet microchipping. This simple procedure is a crucial step in pet safety and ensuring our furry friends stay connected to us, no matter what unexpected turns life may take.

Why Microchip Your Pet?

The decision to microchip your pet is a step toward responsible pet ownership. Here’s why pet microchipping is an essential part of pet care:

  • Enhanced Safety: Microchipping offers a reliable identification method for your pet, significantly increasing the chances of reunion if they ever get lost.
  • Permanent Solution: Unlike collars or tags that can get lost or damaged, a microchip is a lasting form of identification that’s always with your pet.
  • Widespread Identification: Microchips can be scanned in other locations, so even if you travel with your pet, their identification goes with them.

Understanding the Microchipping Process

The microchipping process is straightforward, quick, and causes minimal discomfort to your pet. Here’s what you can expect when you choose to microchip your pet at MarketPlace Veterinary Hospital:

Consultation: We’ll begin by discussing the microchipping process and addressing any questions or concerns you may have. This is a great time to learn more about the benefits of microchipping and how it can offer you peace of mind.

The Procedure: Microchipping is a quick and straightforward procedure that can be completed in a matter of seconds. It’s very similar to a routine vaccination. A microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, is inserted under your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades, using a needle. The process is fast and is generally well-tolerated by pets, similar to receiving a routine shot.

Aftercare: After the microchip is implanted, no significant aftercare is required. Your pet can resume their normal activities immediately. We’ll provide you with all the necessary information on registering the microchip with your contact details in the national database.
