Microchipping

Microchipping is a safe, simple and permanent form of pet identification to immediately identify lost pets and quickly reunite them with their owners.  Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Here at Zebulon Animal Hospital we feel it is very important for every pet to be permanently identified with a microchip.

Microchipping entails the placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the pet’s neck area. A small needle is used to inject the chip. This injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection. If your pet becomes lost and is transported to the animal shelter or a veterinary hospital, they will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you.
