Losing your best friend is every pet parent’s worst nightmare.

Unfortunately, dogs and cats get separated from their owners all the time for a wide variety of reasons. While there are plenty of things that you can do to help ensure that your pet stays by your side, having him or her microchipped is the best thing you can do to improve your odds of being reunited if you ever do become separated. The microchip we use at Jamacha Pet Vets will allow your pet to be registered for life and is recognized domestically and internationally.

At Jamacha Pet Vets, we offer safe and effective microchipping for pets in El Cajon, Granite Hills, Lakeside, and the nearby communities. The process is quick, easy, and makes a real difference when it comes to helping your pet find their way back home.

Microchipping: How it Works

There are several situations in which a pet might go missing. Your indoor cat could slip out an open door, your dog could jump a fence or slip their leash…the possibilities are virtually endless. As a pet parent you do everything you can to keep your animals safe, but big life events (such as moving, adding to your family, or changing schedules) can make that more difficult. Having your pet chipped is the best thing you can do to prepare for these situations.

Getting your pet microchipped in our El Cajon clinic is pretty similar to getting them vaccinated. The chip – which is about the size of a grain of rice – is inserted under your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades using a needle. It takes just a few seconds and causes very little discomfort for your pet. That area generally does not have as much sensation, which is how the moms can pick up their kittens and puppies there without causing pain. Each chip has its own identification number, which is linked to your account when you register it. Keep in mind that the chip itself doesn’t contain any personal information. When you register, you provide your contact information, which can only be accessed if the chip is scanned by a veterinarian or shelter. The microchip we use only has to be registered once and does not require a yearly membership.

If you want to protect your dog or cat, it’s important to have them microchipped. Contact us today to learn more about our El Cajon microchipping services.
