Pet Microchipping

If your pet ever gets lost, you’re much more likely to be reunited with them if they are microchipped.

Pet Microchipping

More than 10 million cats and dogs are lost or stolen in the United States every year, and very few of them ever find their way back to their owners’ arms.

Having your pet microchipped only takes a few seconds, but doing so could save you and your companion from a lifetime of heartache. At Burlingame Family Pet Hospital, we offer microchipping in Burlingame and use HomeAgain microchips to keep dogs and cats safe.

What to Expect

Protect your pet from separation with this simple service.

Microchips are only about the size of a grain of rice, so there is no need for surgery or anesthesia to insert one. The process feels similar to receiving a vaccination, taking just a few seconds. Once in place, the microchip is a permanent form of identification for your furry family member.

If your pet ever gets lost and is taken to a veterinary hospital or animal shelter, an employee will scan them for a chip. Each chip has an identification number linked to an online account. Once set up, the account contains your contact information. As long as the information in your online account is correct and up to date, someone will reach out to reunite you with your pet.
