Animal Identification

Horse & Hound Veterinary Services offers microchipping for horses, dogs and cats. The microchip is an implantable, integrated transponder about the size of a grain of rice. The microchip is encapsulated in bioglass to prevent tissue irritation and microchip migration. It is "injected" via a hypodermic needle and can be done without sedation. The microchip is not a GPS, does not use batteries and becomes energized by a microchip scanner. The microchip is permanent and will last the life of the pet. Each microchip has a unique identification number encoded into its integrated circuit. When enrolled in a pet recovery service this number links the pet to the owner's contact information. Cost is $35 per animal. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call 557-5669.
