Though every pet owner hopes they’ll never need them, microchips can provide peace of mind when it comes to protecting our furry friends. It’s been estimated that one out of every three pets will go missing at some point in their lives, which is why we’re committed to helping make sure they find their way home to you.

If you’ve ever had a pet slip loose of their collar, you know just how easy it is for them to suddenly lose all their identifying information. Whether it gets caught on a fence or lost in a bush, those tags are only useful for identifying your pet if they’re wearing them. Microchips, however, are guaranteed to go wherever your pet goes.

The procedure is quick & easy

The procedure for implanting the chip is quick and easy. We use a slightly larger needle to implant a microchip the size of a grain of rice just under the skin at the scruff of the neck. It’s minimally invasive with no recovery or downtime for your little companion. If they ever go missing, any animal shelter or vet’s office will scan for the chip and your contact information will pop up. The best part is that the information is all linked to an account where you can easily change your address or phone number as needed.


Vet for Pet Animal Hospital is proud to offer pets and owners convenient and accessible microchips in East Hartford, Glastonbury, Manchester, West Hartford, South Windsor, New Britain, Newington and the surrounding New England communities.
