Microchipping

A simple and potentially life-saving procedure

As a pet parent, the last thing you probably want to think

about is being separated from your furry friend.

Sadly, pets are lost every day. Even a well-behaved dog or cat could dart out an open door when frightened by strangers or a loud noise. And pets often run away in fear after being involved in car accidents. Sometimes, they wander a bit too far from home in pursuit of an interesting scent. Whatever the case may be, having your pet microchipped is the best way to boost your odds of seeing them again if they ever get lost.

Here at PetNest Animal Hospital, we perform pet microchipping in Frisco, TX, and recommend this simple and potentially life-saving procedure for nearly all patients.

What to Expect
To have your pet microchipped

Having your pet microchipped takes just seconds and does not require anesthesia. Pet microchips are roughly the same size as a grain of rice and are inserted beneath the skin between the shoulder blades using a syringe. The sensation is similar to getting a shot, and the process is over before many animals even realize anything is happening.

Despite common misconceptions, a microchip is not a tracking device and cannot be used to determine your pet’s geographic location. Instead, each chip has a unique identification number that is used to set up an online account containing your information. If your pet gets lost and is taken to a shelter or animal hospital, they will be scanned for a chip. The scanner will display the chip’s ID number, which will then be used to look up your contact info. As long as the information you have on file is up to date, someone will then reach out to you to reunite you with your pet.
