Animal ID Chip and Tags

Your animal’s tag’s are a must. The use of an animal ID chip is even better. Lack of any ID tags or devices means as few as 14% of pets ever find their way home after getting lost. Regular tag IDs are a minimum for local cases and fortunately, microchipping allows for the pet to have a far greater chance of making it back to its owner no matter how far away it is when found.

About the size of a rice grain, a microchip is inserted under the skin in less than a second. It needs no battery and can be scanned by a vet or an animal control officer quickly.

Be sure to register the chip ID with the chip’s maker. A current registration is the vital last step in making certain your pet can always find his way home.

Regular Animal Check Ups can Detect Problems Early

Just like you, your pet can get heart problems, develop arthritis, other diseases or have a toothache. The best way to prevent such problems or catch them early is to schedule regular animal check ups every year.

Regular exams are the single most important way to keep pets healthy and living a fun life. Our full service means we look at a wide variety of signs to ensure an animal is healthy or has an issue.

Our annual vet check ups touch on nutrition and weight control as well as cover recommended vaccinations, parasite control, dental exam, and health screenings.
