BE SURE YOUR FURRY FRIEND HAS THEIR COMPASS SO THEY CAN FIND THEIR WAY HOME.
What is a microchip? A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is encoded with a unique ID number that will be assigned to your pet. No two microchips have the same ID number. Pets with microchips are twenty times more likely to be reunited with their owners than their unmicrochipped peers.
The microchip is placed between your pet’s shoulder blades under a veterinarian’s supervision. We can microchip rabbits, rats, hamsters, guinea pigs, and more –not just dogs and cats! The procedure is quick, easy, and nearly painless —similar to a vaccine injection —and can be performed during a regular veterinary check-up visit.
With your purchase of our Compass Microchip, you receive a free lifetime microchip registration with AKC Reunite. You will never need to pay any other fees to keep your pet registered in the AKC Reunite system. Many competing microchip programs have hidden fees and annual renewals. With Compass, registration is free for the life of your pet.
THE HIGHEST QUALITY MICROCHIPS
Keep in mind that a microchip is not a tracking device. It can only be “turned on” for a few seconds at a time by a handheld microchip scanner that is passed over the area to read the microchip’s unique ID number. Veterinarians and shelters have these scanners and use them to help lost pets regularly.
Veterinarians also check an animal’s microchip during annual wellness exams to make sure they’re working properly and to ensure that your information is up to date on your pet’s microchip enrollment record.
We use the highest quality microchips for our patients. Their seamless design helps ensure the lifetime integrity of the chip, and the bioglass material prevents leakage, overheating and even possible lead exposure.
