Dog Microchipping


Microchip your dog or cat in The Woodlands

Here at Creekside Animal Hospital, we want to do everything we can to help you to have the most and best years with your feline family member. One thing that we encourage every pet parent to do is microchip your pet. It is a simple procedure that can be done anytime that your cat comes into our practice.

A microchip is a tiny device that is implanted in between the shoulders and under your cat’s skin.  The microchip is registered with your name and information.  If your cat is lost and brought into a shelter or a veterinarian the microchip is scanned and your contact information will be provided by the microchip company, and you will be contacted and reunited with your kitty.

Schedule your pet's microchip appointment today!

People who do not microchip their pets either believe it will not happen to them, they think a collar is enough, or they never have never lost a pet. We hear the same reasons repeatedly.

Every person that has lost a pet without a microchip has said at least one of these things:

  • I was going to get a microchip it the next time we came in for an appointment
  • I was waiting until she was going have surgery (or a dental cleaning)
  • My cat always wears a collar 
  • I just took my cat's collar off for a bath
  • My cat doesn’t wear a collar
  • My cat is too old
  • My cat is too scared to go outside
  • My cat never leaves my side 

Reasons your that cat needs a microchip:

  • Having a microchip will increase the chance that your pet will be returned
  • It will give you peace of mind.
  • Cats that are microchipped are 20 times more likely to be returned home than cats that are not microchipped.
  • International travel and documentation
  • Natural disasters and emergencies
  • Pet theft
  • Accidents happen
  •  It is affordable
  • It is simple and easy

 

Does your pet already have a microchip?

Luckily most of the patients we see come from directly from rescue and adoption groups and already have a microchip. If your pet is has been microchipped that is fantastic but it is crucial that you make sure the chip is registered in your name and that your contact information stays up to date. You can find out where your chip is registered and how to contact them at www.petmicrochiplookup.org.  If you do not have the microchip number, we will be happy to scan your pet's microchip to verify the number anytime

If you are ready to schedule an appointment for cat microchipping services, please contact us today. Our staff would be happy to help you register your feline friend with the pet recovery service database.
