At Spruce Hill Veterinary Clinic, we encourage all pet owners to microchip their animal companions. The sad fact is that only 17% of dogs and 2% of cats make it back to their owners when they become lost. Microchipping greatly increases the chances that your pet will be returned to you.
Microchipping a pet is simple, relatively painless, and very affordable. Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t fall off and they serve as permanent identification for a pet’s entire life.
Microchipping can be done as part of a spay/neuter surgery or anytime you bring your pet in for an exam or routine care. To make an appointment, you can give us a call at (413) 782-3183.
