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 from HomeAgain to increase the chances of a safe recovery. The procedure is safe and quick. Microchips are a reliable and effective way 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. When a pet is scanned with a microchip scanner an identification number will appear. It is important to keep your pet’s microchip information on hand, up to date, and checked by your Veterinarian annually.

We recommend that all pets (even those that do not venture outside) are microchipped.  Once the microchip is in place, the owner must register the microchip with the national database. As a service to our clients, we register any of the microchips that are placed by us. HomeAgain offers a lifetime registration in the HomeAgain National Pet Recovery Database, 24/7 access to a lost pet specialist, rapid “lost pet” alerts, “lost pet” posters, and a 24/7/365 hotline.
