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.

Cat Getting Scanned

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.

This was my first visit with a dog that I had had for a week and a half. I wanted him thoroughly examined for health and a neuter. I had a number of questions since it's been a long time since I have had a younger dog and Dr. Rooker took all of the time necessary to answer all of my questions. I'm afraid I kept everyone there late and I really appreciate the excellent experience. You are my new veterinarian.

Dr. Krick and your whole team are wonderful. In addition, the overall high standards of Hill Country Animal Hospital as a whole are excellent. It is why we have remained clients over the years even after moving away from Helotes.

I was very impressed with the welcoming facility and how much Harley was catered to. She never leaves the house but she felt at home in her exam room roaming around and jumping on counters. She even greeted everyone with open arms even though she was in a new place. She as well as her sister will be coming back if the need arises.

Dr. Macias and staff always deliver first class service. I cannot elaborate enough how their team makes you feel like family.
