Westside Veterinary Clinic is one of a growing number of clinics, hospitals and rescue centers to be a part of the microchip industry. A microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is inserted under your pet’s skin. If your pet becomes lost, whether due to natural disaster or wandering off, and is then brought into a clinic or rescue center all the staff needs to do is scan your pet for a microchip. Reunions are inevitable with microchips! Collars and tags are not as reliable as a microchip due to the fact that they can be removed or can fall off of a pet’s neck. If you are interested in having your pet microchipped please ask our friendly staff at Westside Veterinary Clinic about your options.
