Every year, thousands of lost pets are reunited with their family because of microchips. A microchip is your pet's permanent ID. At Eagan Pet Clinic we can microchip your dog or cat during any routine visit. It is a simple and inexpensive procedure and no anesthetic is required. We can also scan them to see if they already have a microchip. We use the AKC microchip system that is used by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the world. We strongly recommend microchipping all animals. In the event they are separated from you, it may be your only means of being reunited with them.
