Home Again Microchips

February 14, 2013


Did you know that one in three pets go missing during their lifetime? Without proper ID 90% of those pets will never get returned home. Microchips create a lifelong bond between you and your pet.


How they work – A microchip implant takes just seconds at the Thorntown Veterinary Clinic. The chip is inserted under the skin in between your pet’s shoulder blades, it measures only 12 mm which is about the size of a grain of rice. When your pet is found, a microchip scanner is waved over the shoulder blade area emitting a low radio frequency which will transmit your pet's unique ID on the screen.  Once you and your pet are registered, the ID is entered into a nationwide database making it easy to track down your contact information so that you and your pet can be reunited!


At the Thorntown Veterinary Clinic a Home Again Microchip costs $66.00 and this includes placement and registration. Please call to schedule an appointment so together we can take the first step in protecting your pet from losing you!
