Choosing To Microchip Your Pet

 Choosing to Microchip Your Pet

Do you love your pet? Would you want your pet returned if it were lost or stolen? Then you need a microchip!

Every day, we receive calls about lost pets. Now we can help. Our hospital can safely and permanently identify your dog or cat. A simple injection of a tiny microchip under the skin gives your pet A LIFETIME OF PROTECTION. Local animal shelters and clinics use a scanner to check stray animals for this device. It could save your pet’s life.

The ideal time to implant one of these microchips is while your pet is anesthetized for surgery. There will be no pain from the injection, and you won’t need to come in for an additional office visit later.

Using a tiny microchip about the size of a grain of rice, HomeAgain connects you and your pet to a comprehensive pet recovery service, helping to keep your pet safe and giving you peace of mind.

As your pet protection and safety resource, the new HomeAgain offers you a suite of services that includes:

  • HomeAgain National Pet Recovery Database

HomeAgain microchips are designed to last your pet’s entire lifetime and they link to a permanent listing in our national lost pet database.  This means anytime/anywhere pet recovery service—no matter how far your lost pet has travelled.

  • Lost Pet Specialists

The HomeAgain call center is staffed with Lost Pet Specialists trained to help pet owners cope with the stress of losing a pet. Trained professionals are available 24/7 to send out Lost Pet Alerts and personally guide you through the emotional process of finding your lost pet.
