A lost pet - it happens far too often. There are several different brands of microchips on the market today but the Driggs Veterinary Clinic prefers to use HomeAgain® Microchips. These microchips meet the necessary requirements for pets traveling internationally and we feel that a HomeAgain® microchip gives your pet the best chance for a happy homecoming. Over the years we have successfully implanted microchips in dogs, cats, horses and even a traveling pheasant!
A microchips is designed to last your pet's entire lifetime. Once the microchips unique number is registered with HomeAgain®, the microchip number becomes linked to a permanent record of your owner information which includes your home address, your email address and your telephone or cellphone number so you can be reached when your lost pet is found. Because your microchip comes with a personal listing in the HomeAgain® lost pet database, this translates to anytime/anywhere pet recovery services.
Virtually all vets and animal shelters across the country are equipped with universal scanners that can read your pet's microchip. So, HomeAgain® members can breathe a little easier knowing that their lost cat or dog can be identified whether he or she happens to be 3 or 3,000 miles away from home.
