Pet Microchipping

Pet Microchipping at Hartland Park Animal Hospital in Lexington


You want what’s best for your beloved animal companion, which is why it’s so important to arrange for pet microchipping in Lexington in case your pet happens to go missing. Dogs and cats can lose their collar and ID tag while out and about, such as getting caught on a fence and pulling away, or simply because the collar wore out after routine wear and tear. With no tag on your pet’s neck, how would anyone know how to contact you and reunite you with your pet animal?

Fortunately, your veterinarian in Lexington is standing by with a chip to identify your pet. And if your pet has already been chipped, you are invited to bring your pet to our Lexington animal hospital to update the information on their chip.

About RFID Pet Microchips

RFID pet microchips are very small, fitting in a durable glass capsule about the size of a grain of rice. It is a virtual pain-free procedure to inject the chip underneath the pet’s skin. Each pet microchip has a unique identifying number, which is crosschecked against the manufacturer’s database when a lost pet is found. The pet owner fills out contact information that matches the ID of the implanted chip.

The chip is activated by low-power radio waves from the chip scanner. So if someone finds your missing pooch or cat, it’s a simple matter of scanning the animal to identify it as belonging to you.

Are You Unfamiliar with Pet Chipping?

Pet microchipping in Lexington is an easy and pain-free process that takes only a few minutes. Your pet does not require anesthesia or sedation for microchipping. Since August 15 th is National Check the Chip Day, it would be a great idea for you to visit your local veterinarian in Lexington as soon as possible to have your pet implanted with a microchip or update the microchip contact information.

This is why National Check the Chip Day was established as a reminder to responsible pet owners about just how important it is to make sure their pet’s microchip is updated in the pet chip maker’s database. If you move, travel with your pet companion or change phone numbers, it’s crucial to update the details stored in the chip.
