Pet Microchipping in Long Beach

The thought of being separated from your beloved pet is a scary one. Unfortunately, the American Humane Society estimates that roughly one in three pets gets lost at some point during their life. Of them, 80 percent never find their way back home. Those are some frightening statistics, but there is something that you can do. Having your pet microchipped greatly increases the likelihood of being reunited with them if they ever wander off or get lost. At Parkview Pet Hospital, we provide microchipping in Long Beach and would be happy to perform this simple, potentially life-saving procedure on your dog or cat.

How Microchipping Works

A microchip provides permanent identification. However, despite common misconceptions, it is not a tracking device. While an identification tag or a collar can fall off, a microchip is inserted beneath your pet’s skin using a syringe and remains in place for the rest of their life. The microchipping process feels similar to receiving a vaccine, and there is no need for anesthesia, sutures, etc. Each chip is about the same size as a grain of rice and, once in place, is detected using a handheld scanner.

Microchips don’t contain your personal information. Instead, each has a unique identification number that links to an online account containing your details. When you have your pet microchipped, you need to register the chip and provide your name, phone number, and additional information. Our team will help you with this. If you ever relocate, change your phone number, etc., you’ll need to update the information in your account.

If your pet is ever brought into a shelter or vet’s office, they will be scanned for a chip. Someone will then use the number from the microchip to look up your information. As long as the information in your account is current, they will contact you to let you know that they have your furry friend.
