Microchipping is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure that your beloved pet can be easily identified and returned to you if they ever become lost. It involves the insertion of a tiny microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, under your pet’s skin. Each microchip has a unique identification number that can be read by a special scanner, allowing veterinary clinics, animal shelters, and other animal professionals to identify your pet and contact you.

At Kingen Veterinary Clinic, we recommend microchipping in Shelbyville for all pets, including indoor pets. Accidents can happen, and even indoor pets can slip out of doors or windows. In fact, according to the American Humane Association, only about 17% of lost dogs and 2% of lost cats ever find their way back to their original owners. With a microchip, your pet has a much greater chance of being reunited with you if they become lost.

Microchipping is a quick and easy procedure that can be performed during a routine visit. Our trained veterinarians will use a special needle to insert the microchip under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. There is no need for anesthesia or a lengthy recovery period. Once the microchip is in place, we will register your pet’s information in a national database so that it can be easily accessed by animal professionals in case your pet ever becomes lost.
