Cat Microchipping

Microchipping a Cat

Microchipping is a safe, easy and permanent form of identification for your cat.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my cat?


Microchipping is important for identification and tracking purposes when your cat is missing and found elsewhere. Even though we never plan for our cat to be out on its own, mishaps happen, and the best way to reunite a lost cat with his or her family is with a microchip.

How does microchipping work and is it safe for my cat?


The microchip is implanted underneath the skin, usually between the shoulders. Microchipping is very safe. Modern chips are smaller than previous models, migrate less and are an international standard, so it is readable in any country.

How much does it cost to microchip a cat?


Microchipping is very inexpensive, and a small cost compared to the peace of mind knowing your cat will never be without his or her identification. Please contact our veterinary clinic for current pricing.
