Microchip Pet Identification

Losing a pet can be a terrifying experience. One great way to help get your pet back home is to have them implanted with a microchip. If your pet is found and brought to a shelter or veterinary clinic, they can be quickly scanned for the microchip. Once the number is identified, the appropriate microchip registry is contacted and pet is traced back to the registered owner. Our veterinarians and technicians are experienced at microchip implantation. This can be done during a routine exam or at the time of spay or neuter. Each chip is about the size of a grain of rice and is implanted under the skin between the shoulder blades. Here at QVAH, we use Home Again Microchips (homeagain.com). Each chip contains a 15 digit identification number unique for your pet and is compatible with most international travel requirements.

We have a doctor and a highly skilled technician on call until 9 PM, seven days a week. If you leave a message on our answering machine, you will receive a call within one hour during the week, and within a few hours on the weekends. If your pet is experiencing a medical problem that cannot wait, or if it is after 9 PM, we recommend the Veterinary Specialty and Emergency Center in Philadelphia, PA at (267) 800-1950, or The University of Pennsylvania at 215-898-4680.
