Microchipping

We perform microchipping in Plantation and strongly recommend this quick, easy procedure.

Your pet is a treasured member of your family

Why not give them the best chance of making it home if they ever get lost? While all pets should wear collar tags, they can fall off. And tattoos can become illegible over time. A microchip is for life, though, and provides a permanent form of identification that can be used to reunite you and your furry friend if you are ever separated. At Lakeside Animal Hospital, we perform microchipping in Plantation and strongly recommend this quick, easy procedure.

How Microchipping Works

Microchips are tiny transponders that use radiofrequency waves to transmit information to handheld scanners. Each chip is about the size of a grain of rice and has a unique identification number. Once registered, this number is linked to an online account containing your contact information. 

If your pet is picked up and brought to a shelter or animal hospital, an employee will scan them for a microchip using a special microchip reader. Once detected, the reader displays the chip’s identification number, which is then used to look up your information. As long as the information in your account is correct and up to date, someone will reach out to you to reunite you with your four-legged best friend. 

Microchipping takes just a few moments and feels similar to receiving a vaccine. At Lakeside Animal Hospital, we utilize 24PetWatch® microchips. 24PetWatch® is a leading lost pet recovery organization that supports the American Animal Hospital Association (AAHA) Microchip Lookup Tool. With its database of roughly 10 million registered pets, 24PetWatch® has helped countless owners find their lost pets.
