Microchips

Pet Microchip Identification – 1 out of 3 pets will get lost in their lifetime and without identification, 90% never come home. This permanent form of identification is an easy way to bring your pet home quickly. Whether they stay in Oklahoma, or travel to another state, microchips are the best insurance against them getting lost for good. The microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades, and stays there for his or her entire life. At Pet Medical Center of Edmond, this procedure is as easy and as painless as a vaccination.

Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, are added to a national pet registry. All veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found and a microchip is scanned it is easy for you to be contacted.
