Ensuring Pet Safety and Reunion with Microchipping Services

Pet microchipping at Paws Veterinary Clinic and Grooming Spa in Joplin, MO, is a straightforward and essential step in ensuring the safety and well-being of your beloved pets. Our caring team is dedicated to providing this valuable service to enhance the security of your furry family members. For a reliable and permanent form of pet identification, consider microchipping as a proactive measure.

The Pet Microchipping Process

  1. Quick and Painless Procedure: Microchipping is a quick and virtually painless procedure. A tiny microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted beneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. This procedure is similar to a routine vaccination and can be performed during a regular veterinary visit.
  2. Permanent Identification:  The implanted microchip contains a unique identification number. This number is registered with a national pet recovery database and linked to your contact information. In the event that your pet is lost and found, veterinarians, animal shelters, and rescue organizations can use a handheld scanner to read the chip and access your contact details.
  3. Lifetime Protection: Once implanted, the microchip provides a lifetime of protection. Unlike collars and tags, which can be lost or removed, the microchip remains a permanent and secure form of identification for your pet.

Benefits of Pet Microchipping

Increased Chance of Recovery

Microchipped pets have a significantly higher chance of being reunited with their owners if they become lost or stray. The identification provided by the microchip ensures that your pet can be quickly identified and returned to you.

Peace of Mind

Pet owners can enjoy peace of mind knowing that their furry companions have an additional layer of protection. Microchipping is a proactive measure to safeguard your pet against the uncertainties of wandering or accidental separation.

Compliance with Local Regulations

In many areas, microchipping is becoming a standard practice and is often required by local regulations. Ensuring that your pet is microchipped not only aligns with legal requirements but also contributes to the overall safety of your pet.
