Microchip your pet for your Pet’s Safe Return if Lost
Dog Microchipping Acoaxet Veterinary Clinic, Westport, MA
Microchips are tiny devices that provide a permanent and unalterable identifier for your dog or cat. We strongly recommend microchip implantation for every dog and cat. Microchips are safe and inexpensive, and they dramatically increase the chances of being reunited with your pet in the unfortunate event they are lost.
Our veterinarians can microchip your dog or cat during their annual wellness exam. The procedure is very simple to perform and no anesthesia is required. At Acoaxet Veterinary Clinic, we can quickly search the database to see if a chip has already been implanted. The identifier found in the device will allow you to be contacted as soon as possible so that your pet can return home safe and sound.
The Pet Microchip Lookup website is a helpful resource for reuniting owners and their pets based on the microchip number that operates independently of microchipping companies. Many microchip manufacturers also have support services that will proactively search for pets as soon as they are reported missing and are available 24/7.
