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.

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

I really can't offer any suggestions for improvement. Dr. Rooker is great. No matter what we see or call her for, she is always very knowledgeable as well as very kind. Also, she always follows up with a phone call. This is very much appreciated. Your staff is great. When we walk in the door, we are always greeted by name made to feel that our visit is just as important to them as it is to us. Thank you.

This is probably the best office I have been to. I’m not just talking about for the animals…the customer service from the first phone call, to stopping in to pick up meds, to the moment I walked out and even the follow up call! Top notch. Appreciated that you are able to check out in the room. This is really helpful especially to keep interaction without pets to a minimum. I will be back. This was a wonderful 1st time experience. And thank you to the doctor for following up with a call.
Erika G., San Antonio, TX
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. (sic)
