Microchip your pet for your Pet’s Safe Return if Lost

Dog Microchipping Foothills Animal Hospital, Phoenix, AZ

Foothills Animal Hospital Phoenix

Microchips are tiny devices that provide a permanent, unalterable identifier for your pet.  We strongly recommend microchipping for all animals. These safe and inexpensive chips dramatically increase the chances of being reunited with a lost pet.

At Foothills Animal Hospital we can microchip your dog or cat during any routine office visit.  It is a simple procedure similar to a vaccination, and no anesthetic is required. If your pet was rescued from a shelter or adopted from another owner, we can also perform a quick check to see if a chip has already been implanted.

Any pet found by a shelter will be scanned for a microchip. The identifier found in this device will allow you to be contacted quickly so that your dog or cat can be safely returned home. In addition to performing recoveries, many chip manufacturers also have services that will proactively search for pets as soon as they are reported missing, and are available for support 24/7.

AVID chips are also widely supported by shelters and veterinary clinics throughout the US and Canada. Please visit the AVMA's website and the AVID website for more information, and answers to frequently asked questions about microchipping.

The Pet Microchip Lookup web site is another helpful resource for locating owners of lost pets based on the microchip number that operates independently of microchipping companies.
