Microchipping

Tampa Bay Animal Hospitals | Tampa, FL

Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families.

We offer the most widely used microchip products to increase the chances of a safe recovery. The procedure is safe and quick.

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.

microchip_injectionWhen 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.
