Every year millions of pets are lost and can only be reunited with their family if they are found. Microchips are tiny devices that provide a permanent, unalterable identifier for your pet. We strongly recommend microchipping for all animals. These safe and inexpensive chips dramatically increase the chances of being reunited with a lost pet.
At Norwalk Animal Hospital we can microchip your dog or cat during any routine office visit. It is a simple procedure similar to a vaccination, and no anesthetic is required. If your pet was rescued from a shelter or adopted from another owner, we can also perform a quick check to see if a chip has already been implanted.
