Pet Microchipping in Orange Beach, AL

Animal Medical Center offers pet microchipping in Orange Beach, Alabama!

You love your cat or dog and don’t want to imagine your life without them—but have you done everything possible to make sure that you’re never separated from your precious pet?  If the unthinkable happens and your dog or cat is ever lost or stolen, do you have a plan in place to give them their best chance of coming back home?  

Wearable ID (such as a tag on a collar) is a good start.  Unfortunately, some pets object to wearing a collar, and even if your dog or cat does consistently wear an ID tag, things can still happen to complicate matters.  Identification tags can be lost, damaged (making them difficult to read), or even removed by petnappers, making your pet difficult if not impossible to identify.  That’s where pet microchipping comes in!

Pet microchipping is a safe, easy, permanent way to mark your cat or dog with potentially life-saving information—details that can be the key to reuniting them with their friends and family.  

Dr. Kasey, Dr. Meghan & Dr. Scarlett at Animal Medical Center offer microchipping for dogs and cats in Orange Beach, AL, and surrounding areas of the South Baldwin area.  If you’ve been considering having your beloved pet microchipped, don’t put it off any longer!  We can help you quickly, effectively, and affordably chip your pet with crucial information that can help bring them back home to you.  The microchipping process is painless and can be done in just a few minutes!  

We’re happy to answer any questions you may have about microchipping for cats and dogs.  Please don’t hesitate to give us a call for more information!

Microchipping for Dogs & Cats in Orange Beach, Alabama

We all love our pets and are troubled by the possibility of losing them.  The very idea of being separated from our furry friends, unable to find them or be sure that they’re safe, is enough to make us anxious.  It’s not a pleasant thing to think about, but it’s important to know the facts.  Here are a couple of worrying statistics about lost and missing pets:  

  • According to American Humane, somewhere around 10 millions pets are lost in the United States every year.
  • A study by the ASPCA (American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals) found that about 14% of dog-owners and 15% of cat owners reported losing their pet within a five-year period. 

Many pets that go missing end up in animal shelters, and if they aren’t microchipped or wearing identification, they may never be reunited with their owners.  That’s why we should all take action to microchip our pets while we have the chance.  Few of us expect to lose our cat or dog, but it happens.  With millions of pets going missing each year, you want to know that if your dog or cat is ever lost, you’ve done everything in your power to give them a lifeline so they can find their way back to you.

Microchip Your Pet in Orange Beach, AL

Pet microchipping is an important and responsible step every pet owner should take.  It involves inserting a small chip—about the size of a grain of rice—under your pet’s skin.  The microchipping procedure is similar to a vaccination in terms of invasiveness; it’s a quick, simple process that most dogs scarcely notice.  The “chip” is actually a radio-frequency identification transponder.  Each one contains a unique identification number that can be linked to your contact information.  Be sure to update this information if your phone numbers or other contact details change.  Microchipping is only effective if your info is up-to-date in the registry.  (We can tell you more about that at your pet’s microchipping appointment.)

If your pet is ever lost, the microchip can be scanned by a veterinarian or animal shelter.  Once they retrieve the information on the chip, they can quickly reunite you with your beloved companion.  

Unlike collars and tags, microchips cannot fall off or be removed; they are permanent.  Microchipping your pet isn’t expensive, and it can provide peace of mind and significantly increase the chances of a happy reunion if they ever go missing.
