Ensuring Your Pet’s Safe Return
How would you find your pet if he or she was lost?
Every year, millions of pets go missing. Unfortunately, many do not find their way home. At Hill Country Animal Hospital, our concern for your pet’s safety extends beyond the hospital. Because of this, we recommend microchipping for all our clients. Microchipping is a safe, simple, and effective way to prevent your pet from being permanently lost.
About the size of a grain of rice, identification microchips are implanted beneath your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a unique number that is assigned to your pet. Once you register the microchip, it will link the microchip to your pet. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters around the world are equipped with special scanners, which read the microchips. The information on your microchip helps reunite you with your animal companion.
Our facility uses resQ™ microchips, a comprehensive system that includes a number of valuable benefits. These include:
- No pre-registration or annual fees
- 24/7 customer service availability
- Worldwide coverage, as resQ’s microchips can be read by any International Organization for Standardization (ISO) compliant scanners throughout the world
Registration of your resQ microchip is essential to the microchipping process. Without registration, the microchip will not link to your pet’s information. Visit the PetLink to register your pet today or contact us to learn more about the microchipping your pet.
