One of the most heartbreaking and debilitating things to go through in life is realizing that your pet is missing and having no idea where to even look. They’re all you can think about as you await their return, hoping and praying that they’re okay. Thousands of lost pets are put into shelters monthly, even though they have a loving family out there searching for them. The good news is that there is an affordable and incredibly simple way to solve this problem.
At Southern Hills Veterinary Hospital in Tulsa, we provide microchipping to ensure that you know where your pet is throughout their entire lives! So what is a microchip? Basically, it’s a miniscule tracking chip inside of a biocompatible capsule no bigger than a grain of rice. Once registered, the chip will transmit radio waves with your pet’s specific tracking number with your contact information. So when a pet is found, its owner is able to be contacted immediately. Simple as that!
The process is also quick, affordable, and it’s no more painful than your pet’s annual vaccinations. Another common misconception is that microchips are only for dogs. Not true at all — especially since most cats don’t even have a collar, it’s even more important for them to be chipped.
The choice is simple! In case your pet has gone missing, don’t worry and know that when they are found, you will be contacted immediately. The process is safe, low in cost, and the most effective method to recover your pet.
The knowledgeable and experienced staff at Southern Hills Veterinary Hospital treats your pet like a member of your family—because we know that they are. If your pet is in need of a microchip or any other of our veterinarian services, contact us today to schedule an appointment!
