The Best ID For Your Pet
A microchip is a permanent form of ID. About the size of a grain of rice, it is implanted under the skin and can't be lost or removed like a collar or tag. If your pet is ever lost or stolen, any veterinarian or shelter it might wind up at will scan it for a microchip. When found, they can use it to reunite your with your lost companion.
AVC Doesn't Use Just Any Microchip
We exclusively use Microfindr chips because:
- Unlike almost all other chips, there are NO hidden or recurring fees. Implantation includes lifetime registration, and there's never a charge to change your information if you move.
- Our chips are much smaller than other brands, making implantation more comfortable for your pet. The Microfindr needle will literally fit inside a Home Again needle!
- When you register the chip you can also add medical alerts and medications to the database. This means if your diabetic dog or hyperthyroid cat is lost, when their chip is scanned and looked up in the database those alerts will come up, letting the vet or shelter know they need medication that could save their life!
