Keep track of your pet
Nearly 1 in 3 pets will become lost at some point during their lives. Microchip implants are an incredibly simple, inexpensive and effective way to find lost pets, keeping them out of animal shelters and getting them back where they belong: with their owners! These tiny chips serve as permanent pet identification, and they cannot be removed or damaged. Nearly 8 million animals enter U.S. shelters every year, and by supporting this practice, Santa Clarita Animal Hospital hopes to lower this number.
An easy, nearly pain-free procedure places the chip just under the skin where a special biopolymer keeps the device in place. Authorities only need to scan the chip to find the owner’s contact information so the pet can be returned home quickly and safely.
Santa Clarita Animal Hospital believes microchipping is the safest, most effective method of pet recovery available, as microchips help reunite more than 15,000 lost pets to their owners every month.
