Benefits of Microchipping Pets in Winston-Salem, NC

Here at Forsyth Veterinary Hospital, we recommend microchipping pets in Winston-Salem. Dr. Ruth Gillis provides this service for dogs and cats as a way to better identify pets using radio frequency technology that is safe for animals. Dr. Gillis and our vet techs have extensive experience in providing pets with microchips. Let us help you to understand the many reasons why you should considering getting your pet microchipped.

What Happens When You Microchip a Cat or Dog?

When you go for a microchip for dogs or cats your pet will get a tiny implant inserted just beneath their skin. The procedure is minimally invasive and quick. This microchip includes a personalized pet ID number. Animals that are taken to an animal shelter or to a vet can be scanned using radio frequency technology. The information is registered in a national database allowing the person to gain vital data about the dog or cat.

My Cats and Dogs are Inside Animals, Why Should I Get Them Microchipped?

If you bring your microchip cat or dog to your veterinarian in Winston-Salem we can do a pet microchip lookup. This allows us to obtain all of their medical history and immunization records with ease. It also ensures that your pets are protected if they are ever stolen or lost. Other vets or the authorities can scan your pet for owner verification. 

How Does My Winston-Salem Veterinarian Manage Pet Microchip Registration?

When your pet is fitted with a microchip here at your Winston-Salem veterinarian we use the HomeAgain microchip service. We will register the microchipped dog or cat for you.
