Microchipping

At Livermore Family Pet Hospital, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.

But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pets’ fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure and is completely safe.

This microchip is registered with your pets’ vital information and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.

As an added bonus, we can scan the newer Home Again microchips to obtain your pet’s current body temperature. No more invasive temperature probes!  Home Again membership is optional and included in the first year of microchipping. It includes free calls to the Animal Poison Control hotline, and lost pet posters that are sent to veterinary hospitals and shelters within 30 miles of your home.  Updating your contact information is free for life.
