Pet Microchipping in Virginia Beach, VA

A pet microchip is a small device implanted under your pet’s skin containing identification information that can be read by a special scanner.

Commonly used for dogs and cats, our veterinarian will implant the microchip beneath your pet’s skin, between the shoulder blades. A microchip is small, roughly the size and shape of a grain of rice, and implantation is safe, only taking a few minutes. The information on the chip typically includes the pet’s name, owner’s contact information, and the pet’s unique identification number. Pet microchips can help ensure that lost pets are returned to their owners and can also be used to identify an animal if it is involved in a legal dispute or other situation.
