Microchipping

The Value of Microchipping Your Pet

Pets get lost all the time, and lost animals can get surprisingly far away from home, and end up in some unlikely places. This is why it is important to microchip your pet. The beauty of microchipping is that all animal shelters and animal control centers have the tools to read a microchip. No matter where your pet ends up, microchipping helps your pet make it home quickly and safely.

A Collar is No Match for Nature

Many people think a collar with tags is enough to identify their pet. However, dogs and cats can slip their collars with ease. Collars can be snagged and pulled off. Without a clear connection to an owner, your pet can easily be classified as a stray. Unfortunately, animal control agencies in many jurisdictions have no choice but to put down stray animals after a certain amount of time has passed. 

Simple and Effective

Microchipping involves placing a body-friendly ID tag between your pet’s shoulder blades. The process is quick, easy, and can be completed in a few minutes. There is no irritation, and the chip does not cause a reaction because it is designed from bio-friendly material. The ID in the chip is readable with an RFID scanner. Every single animal shelter and animal control center will have one of these scanners on hand. When scanned, the microchip reveals a number that is linked to your name, address, phone number, and other identifying information. As long as your microchip registration ID is kept up to date, your lost pet will easily be identified and returned.

    Natalie F.
  • "This was our first time to visit Creekside. Do to the Corona Virus we needed to pull into the parking lot and call to let them know we were there. To my surprise the Doctor came to the car in person. I must say that I had a very good impression of her. I was very satisfied with the service we received there. After she completed the exam she called us to explain the results of the exam and answer any questions we had. At this time I would recommend them highly."
    Robert J.
  • "We have been coming to Creekside for 4 years now. I could not imagine going anywhere else! They have always been very patient with all of our questions & they were all very supportive when our dogs helped themselves to a bag of chocolate. I always know that when I have to leave our furbabies at Creekside for the day that will be well taken care of."
