Permanent Identification / Microchipping

At Whippany Veterinary Hospital, we strongly recommend microchipping your pet as a safe, simple way to provide permanent identification. This implantable chip just larger than a grain of rice is easily placed under your pet’s skin during an office visit. 

Why Microchip?

  • Permanent ID that can’t fall off or fade 
  • 24/7 recovery services to reunite lost pets
  • Proof of ownership in disputes

A chip is scanned to reveal your contact info in a pet recovery database. If your pet becomes lost, the chip greatly increases the chance they’ll be returned safely home to you.

Microchipping is recommended early in life for all dogs and cats, and can be performed at the same time as a spay or neuter procedure. We also advise chipping any outdoor pet at higher risk – even house rabbits and turtles! 

Don’t risk losing your beloved companion. Call Whippany Veterinary Hospital today at 973-386-1380 to schedule microchipping. It takes just moments to give your pet the gift of safer identification.
