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.

You do everything well! From the second you walk in the door you are greeted by name, told "we have you checked in," etc. The veterinary assistant was so great! Dr. Krick is wonderful as is Dr. Peterson. They both share knowledge and listen well.

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.

The staff at Hill Country Animal Hospital is wonderful. They are knowledgeable and helpful and are always willing to go out of the way to make my pet feel comfortable. I love the fact that the doctors and/or staff always call to check on my pet after she has had a procedure. It is these special touches that make this place so very special. Thank you so much for everything you do!!
