We are moving to the area and would like to microchip our 2 cats. What kind is generally used in the Tampa area and how much do you charge?

Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. We offer the most widely used microchip product, Home Again Microchip, to increase the chances of a safe recovery. The procedure is safe and quick only only costs $58.  During Hurricane Season, we have a $10 off promotion, so your cost will by $48!  We recommend that all pets, even those that do not venture outside, are microchipped. Microchips are popular, reliable, and effective ways to permanently identify our pets. The chip is small, about the size and shape of a grain of rice, and is easily inserted under your pet’s skin. Once the microchip is in place, the owner must register the microchip with the national database. When a pet is scanned with a microchip scanner an identification number will appear. This number is linked to a national database that has all of the owner’s contact information. We recommend to annually update your information with the database, and have your pet’s microchip checked at each annual visit.  You can stop by at anytime and a technician will help you.  Or simply call 813 988 1189 in Temple Terrace, 813 877 6369 in South Tampa, 813 885 4477 in West Tampa or 813 973 8566 in North Tampa- any of our offices will be able to help you.
