Microchipping with our Montebello, Lynwood, and East Los Angeles Veterinarians

Life would be much easier for pet owners if their pets would always stay where they're supposed to be -- but sadly, that isn't the case. Animals can wander off, get stolen, or become separated from their families in the chaos of a disaster. Fortunately, there's a simple method you can employ to make sure your pet can be identified and reunited with you, even if he loses his collar tag. Here at Casillas Veterinary Hospital, we offer convenient microchipping at our veterinary hospitals in Montebello, Lynwood, and East Los Angeles.

How Pet Microchipping Works

A microchip is a tiny, extremely simple piece of technology. This transceiver, which is about the size of a grain of rice, contains nothing more than a unique ID number. This number connects your pet to a national registry service where your contact information is stored. The microchip doesn't even need a power source. When an animal worker scans an unidentified pet's body with an RFID scanner, that energy prompts the chip to send the ID number to the scanner. The workers can then look up your information and inform you that your pet has been found.

The microchipping process is remarkably simple, convenient and affordable. The chip is so small that your vet can simply insert it under the skin between your pet's shoulder blades via syringe, making surgery unnecessary. We can microchip your dog or cat as part of his normal wellness exam.

An Easy, Effective Step Towards Reclaiming Your Dog or Cat

Even if your pet has an up-to-date collar tag (as every pet should), they can still benefit from microchipping. That's because collar tags can get detached from their collars -- and entire collars can become detached from pets. If your pet only has a collar tag, there's a good chance that he may lose it, making it impossible for anyone to trace him back to you.

By contrast, microchipping has demonstrated its effectiveness time and time again. Research shows that dogs without microchips are reunited with their owners less than 22% of the time, as opposed to 52.2% of microchipped dogs. In cats, the results are even more dramatic, with 38.5% of felines finding their way home as opposed to a mere 2% of non-microchipped cats. With numbers like that, the decision to microchip your pet becomes an easy one.
