Microchipping for Dogs

As part of our wellness program, we recommend all dogs be microchipped. This simple, painless procedure installs a tiny chip the size of a grain of rice under your pet’s skin, between the shoulder blades. If he or she is ever lost, microchipping provides a safe, effective way to help your dog make it home safely.  Once the microchip is inserted, it permanently remains in place and your pet is identified for life. Microchips are safe, unalterable, and permanent identification for dogs.  In the event they are separated from you, it may be your only means of being reunited with them.

Each tiny microchip is encoded with unique information about your dog. This information is entered into a national database. Veterinary hospitals and animal shelters across the country are equipped with special scanners capable of detecting and reading microchips. If your pet is lost, his or her microchip is scanned, and the information is used to reunite you and your best friend.

You can visit the AVMA’S website and the Home Again website to learn more about some of the most frequently asked questions about microchipping.

You can also use the Pet Microchip Lookup web site to find a dog’s owners based on the microchip number, independent of the microchipping company.

These professionals have been like Angels to our family. They have taken care of our sweet old boy Karma. They have given tirelessly of themselves during the pandemic and I am so happy we found a Vet that I truly trust and appreciate. 10/10 would reccomend!

The doctor was very helpful and friendly. He was able to provide me with education about my dog in a very easy to understand manner. The price was great and the location is amazing. I will definitely be taking my dog here while we are stationed in Illinois.

Jeff Kordell is the best vet! I have been a pet owner for about two years now. When I first got my dog I went to 7 different vets before a friend told me about AMC. This office is an hour away from my house and is SO worth the drive! The office is very clean and the staff is wonderful. If you are looking for a vet that truly loves animals, look no further!

This is the only place I ever would trust my animals- Dr. Kordell has taken care of my dogs like they are his own. Dr. Spector has two of my dogs in her care for congestive heart failure and the whole team, including the techs are amazing.
