Help Your Pet Find Their Way Home

As a loving animal owner, losing your pet is likely one of your biggest fears. Unfortunately, pets go missing every day. No matter how careful you are, it takes just seconds for a dog to escape from their yard or jump out a car window. And a cat can dart out a door in a flash. Even if your pet is well-trained, they may behave unpredictably when scared by unexpected houseguests, storms, fireworks, or other loud sounds.

Having your dog or cat microchipped is the best way to help them find their way back home if they ever get lost. At Animal Medical Hospital, we perform microchipping for pets in Hempstead, Rockville Centre, Garden City, and the surrounding areas, and we’d be happy to perform this potentially lifesaving procedure on your pet.

Dog Microchipped

How it Works

Having your pet microchipped only takes a few seconds, and there is no need for anesthesia. A microchip is roughly the same size as a grain of rice and is injected beneath the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades using a syringe. The process feels like receiving a vaccination, and no aftercare is needed.

Each microchip has a unique identification number. This number is linked to an account containing your contact information. Despite common misconceptions, microchips do not have tracking capabilities. If your dog or cat is ever picked up and taken into a shelter or animal hospital, an employee will scan them for a chip. They will then use the chip’s identification number to look up your contact info. As long as the information in your account is up to date, they will contact you to reunite you with your pet.
