Microchipping Services in Anaheim


Every once in a while, pets lose their way. As pet-owners, we do our best to make sure that their collars and tags are always on, but unfortunately these can easily tear or slip off. We always hope that our furry friends don鈥檛 get lost, but it鈥檚 important to be prepared if they do. One of the best options to ensure that a lost pet gets home is microchipping him or her.

What is microchipping?

Microchipping is a procedure that involves Dr. L贸pez inserting a small chip that is about the size of a grain of rice between your pet鈥檚 shoulder blades. The microchip contains an identification number that can be read by a scanner. If your pet gets lost and is picked up by an animal hospital, the identification number will be used to contact you and reunite you with your pet.

What is the process?

A microchip is implanted with a hypodermic needle. Getting a microchip implanted in your dog or cat is a safe process that usually requires local anesthesia.

The needle that is used for the microchipping procedure is big聽and may hurt your pet, which聽is why we recommend sedation. If your dog or cat is due for another procedure that requires sedation, we suggest scheduling both procedures at the same time so that you would not have to bring in your pet multiple times.

If no other procedure is required, we can simply use local anesthesia so that we can insert the microchip without hurting your pet.

What information is stored in the microchip?

Pet microchips contain identification numbers that will be stored in a database. If your pet gets lost, an animal hospital can scan the microchip and retrieve the contact information that you provide.

At Brookhurst Animal Medical Center in Anaheim, we can ensure that your pets will get back to you if they wander away. By getting them microchipped, you can make sure that your pets are able to return to you safely. As a leading veterinarian in Anaheim, Dr. L贸pez鈥榮 level of expertise in animal care will give you the peace of mind knowing that your pets are in good care.
