Every year, many pets go missing from households in Mobile and the surrounding areas, as well as across the country. Fortunately, permanent identification is available that offers your pet the best opportunity to be returned to you if they wander from your home. A microchip the size of a grain of rice is virtually painlessly inserted under your pet’s skin and will identify them when placed under a microchip reader. Most veterinary practices and local shelters have a microchip reader required to read the microchip and identify your pet. Microchipping is an effective and cost-efficient method of having your pet returned to you in the event they are separated from you. Call Bel Air Animal Hospital to schedule an appointment to have your pet microchipped today!
