Microchip Lost Pet ID
Does your pet have a microchip? Each year, millions of pets go missing and many don’t make it back home. Microchipping your pet is a safe, simple and effective way to prevent this tragedy. About the size of a grain of rice, identification microchips are encoded with your pet’s vital information and implanted beneath your pet’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades.
Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country and around the world are equipped with special scanners capable of reading these microchips. The information in the chip is used to reunite you with your pet.
Deer Park Animal Hospital uses the AVID (American Veterinary Identification Devices) microchip system. AVID is recognized not only across the United States, but throughout South and Central America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and South Korea. AVID also offers a number of resources to help families reunite with a lost pet.
