Avenues Pet Clinic encourages microchipping, even if your pet lives entirely indoors—because even indoor pets can escape and become lost. The American Humane Society estimates over 10 million dogs or cats are reported lost each year and unfortunately, a large percentage of those lost pets are never returned to their owner.


  • Unlike collars and tags, microchips can’t fall off, and they serve as permanent identification for a pet’s entire life.
  • Microchips are rated for 25 years, meaning they never need to be replaced or recharged during your pet’s lifetime.
  • Microchipping a pet is simple, relatively painless and very affordable.

Why Microchipping is So Important

Once implanted, the chip can be easily scanned to locate your information. In fact, this is always the first step taken by animal control officers or veterinary hospital personnel when they are presented with a lost animal. When that animal has a microchip, the owner’s information can simply be looked up and a reunion can happen as soon as the owner can be reached. But remember: a microchip is only useful if your contact information is updated in the microchip registry.

The Microchipping Process:

  • Consultation: Our veterinarians will discuss the microchipping process with you and address any questions or concerns you may have.
  • Implantation: The microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is safely inserted under your pet's skin using a sterile applicator.
  • Registration: We will help you register the microchip with your contact information in a national pet recovery database, ensuring your details are up-to-date and easily accessible.
