Microchipping

Microchips have helped reunite thousands of cats with their families.

We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery. The procedure is safe and quick.

We recommend that all cats, even those that do not venture outside, are microchipped. Microchips are popular, reliable, and effective ways to permanently identify our cats. The chip is small, about the size and shape of a grain of rice, and is easily inserted under your cat’s skin. Once the microchip is in place, the owner must register the microchip with the national database.

When a cats is scanned with a microchip scanner an identification number will appear. This number is linked to a national database that has all of the owner’s contact information. We recommend to annually update your information with the database, and have your cat’s microchip checked at each annual visit.
