Can you imagine if your pet was lost, or worse, stolen? Most veterinary practices and animal shelters routinely scan for the presence of microchips in lost and found pets. Iowa Veterinary Wellness Center of Waukee offers a microchip service for your dog or cat.
A microchip is roughly the size of a grain of rice and inserted under the skin in between the shoulder blades. You will need to register your pet’s new microchip to provide your contact information and then it will be linked electronically to your pet’s specific microchip. If your pet is ever lost, a scanner can detect the microchip and your contact information, so you can be reunited with your beloved pet.
Please call us with any questions about our microchip services, or to learn about what to expect during your pet’s visit.
