Microchipping is a means of pet identification. An implant, about the size of a grain of rice, is injected under the skin between the shoulder blades. Most animal shelters and veterinarians are equipped with a scanner. When activated and waved over the pet's shoulders, the scanner detects the microchip's unique number. A quick call to a data base company allows the microchip number to be matched with the guardian's telephone number.
Clayton Animal Hospital uses the HomeAgain Microchip System. HomeAgain is the only dog & cat microchipping product on the market today that has the Bio-Bond patented anti-migration feature to help ensure that the microchip will stay in place so that it may be easily located and scanned. If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or veterinarian, they will scan the microchip to read its unique dog or cat ID code. This is the number used by HomeAgain to identify the pet and retrieve your contact information, which is used to contact you and reunite you with your pet.
