Have you ever had the scary and painful experience of a lost pet? Every year, many dogs and cats are separated from their owners for a variety of reasons in the Augusta area. In the past, collars with tags, putting up flyers with their picture, and searching were the only hope of reuniting with a lost furry family member. Fortunately, there is now a permanent form of identification known as a microchip that can be administered to your dog or cat at Walton Way Veterinary Clinic in Augusta.
A microchip is a tiny device the size of a grain of rice which is injected under the loose skin above the shoulder blades. Each microchip has a unique identification number which is then recorded and stored in a data base. In the event your precious pet is lost and taken to another veterinary clinic or a shelter, they will be scanned for the microchip containing the identification number with your contact information.
The caring doctors and staff at Walton Way Veterinary Clinic want you and your furry family member to be together, and a microchip can help! Please call us today at 706-733-2288 and have your dog or cat microchipped today or visit Home Again to learn more about pet microchipping.
