Camden Pet Hospital offers microchipping for pets. We use the resQ pet identification system . You can rest easy knowing your pet is protected - whether you’re at home or out of town.
What is microchipping?
A microchip is a tiny electronic device that’s just about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades and stays there for the duration of their life. This procedure is relatively painless and as easy as a vaccination.
How does microchip identification work?
Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, are added to a national registry. Most veterinarians and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found, and the microchip is scanned, the registry is called and the owner is contacted.
Please call us at (408) 265-2200 to make an appointment.
Did you know that 1 in 3 pets will get lost over the course of their lifetime?
Without identification, 90 percent of lost pets never return home. Luckily, almost all humane organizations have scanners that can read microchips.
