Does your pet have a microchip? Each year, millions of pets go missing and many never to return. Microchipping your pet is a safe, simple and effective way to prevent this tragedy.

The Animal Clinic of East Avenue offers the HomeAgain microchip system. HomeAgain provides a number of very useful services to pet owners such as their National Pet Recovery Database, Lost Pet Specialists, Rapid Lost Pet Alerts, Lost Pet Medical Insurance, Travel Assistance for Found Pets, and more.

Approximately, the size of a grain of rice, identification microchips are encoded with your pet’s vital information and implanted, non-invasively, just beneath the skin, usually between the shoulder blades. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country and around the world are equipped with scanners capable of reading these microchips.
