At our hospital, we use resQ  microchips for our patients. A safe and inexpensive procedure, microchipping your pet can ensure that your pet is returned safely to you in the event he is lost. Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. Our veterinarian simply injects a microchip for pets, about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine shot, takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anesthetic is required.

A resQ microchip is permanent pet ID and registration is free. The microchip itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner over the pet's shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchip's unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet.
