Microchip Identification: Each year, many pets are lost. Because these pets lack identification (collars and tags are often missing), many are never reunited with their owners. Worse, many are euthanized at animal shelters. To increase the chances that your pet will be reunited with you, we recommend the placement of a microchip. This is a small chip, encased in glass, about the size of a grain of rice, which is inserted under the skin. It is permanent and causes no reaction with the body. The chip number can then be registered with the national registry. In the event that your pet is lost and brought to an animal shelter or veterinary hospital with a microchip scanner, a scan is made, the chip number is recorded and the national registry is called to obtain information on the pet, such as owner’s name, phone number and any medical problems. Since this technology became available over ten years ago, thousands of animals’ lives have been saved. Insertion of the microchip at the time of surgery will be done for $63.00 (Note: This includes a lifetime registration paid to the national registry and we will pay this fee as a thank you for microchipping your pet today).
ELIZABETHAN COLLAR: Following surgery, some patients will lick or chew at the sutures, particularly when left alone. No one can predict which pets will do this. An Elizabethan Collar can decrease the likelihood of a pet being able to reach the surgical incision with his/her mouth.
