When a beloved family member gets lost or stolen it is a devastating experience. The good news is that microchips make it more likely that your lost pet will be returned. HomeAgain microchip placement is a service that we offer for permanent pet identification. The microchip is a tiny capsule, the size of a grain of rice, which is placed between the shoulder blades and under the skin. The microchip has a code unique to each pet and once implanted, it is registered in the National Pet Recovery database. Keep in mind that a microchip is not a GPS tracker. The microchip can be scanned if a pet gets lost or stolen, and the information is used to contact the owner.
