At North Elm Animal Hospital, we understand that the bond you and your beloved furry friend share is invaluable and irreplaceable.

Pet Microchipping

Microchipping is a permanent solution that ensures your pet can be properly identified by a veterinarian or animal shelter, and reunited with you.


A microchip is implanted through a syringe that injects it underneath the skin. A microchip is usually implanted between the shoulder blades. At approximately 12mm long, it is about the same size as a grain of rice. Implanting a microchip only takes a few seconds, and it is meant to last your pet’s lifetime.

Each microchip includes a unique code linked to the contact details and profile of the pet’s owner. Veterinarian clinics, animal shelters, and other animal agencies in your community can scan this chip. Therefore, it is crucial that you not only microchip your pet but also register it, keep the microchip business informed of any changes in your address or phone number, and microchip your pet.
