Hôpital vétérinaire de Chambly offers microchipping services, giving you an extra tool to help you locate your lost or runaway pet.
What is microchipping?
Microchipping is a procedure where a veterinarian inserts a microchip under the animal’s fur. The microchip contains an identification number associated with the pet’s owner contact information. With this information, a lost pet can be identified and returned to its owner.
Is a microchip dangerous or painful for my pet?
Not at all. A microchip contains no harmful materials and is the size of a grain of rice. It is inserted under the animal’s skin using a syringe—the same sensation as getting vaccinated. Your pet will feel a slight discomfort for a few seconds, but that’s all.
