Microchip

clip_image002Every two seconds a family pet is lost.  Village Veterinary Hospital offers our clients a way to protect their pet from being lost, with a personal identification chip made by HomeAgain.  Developed by a veterinarian, the HomeAgain friendchip is a way to identify your pet and it is proven safe and effective.  A tiny microchip that contains a personal, one of a kind identification number distinguishes your pet as a special member of your family.

THE CHIP
The chip is so tiny that it fits through a hypodermic needle.

Just like a vaccination, it is injected under the skin of your pet where it remains safely for life.  This inexpensive procedure can be done anytime and best of all protect virtually any pet you love…dogs, cats, horses, birds and reptiles.

HOW IT WORKS
Once your pet has the chip if he or she should become lost and is found by a participating shelter or taken to a veterinarian they will be checked for a chip with a special scanner.

When the shelter or Veterinarian finds a chip number, they will contact HomeAgain’s 24 hour hotline at 1-888-466-3242, your vet or your alternate contact will be notified.

Only HomeAgain gives you big beneifits as part of your annaul membership. Your pet’s microchip comes with lifetime registration in the database as well as one year of HomeAgain membership. Benefits ate then renewable on an annaul basis.
