Pet Microchipping and Pet Nutritional Consultation Services
Animal Medical Center of Wentzville is committed to bringing the latest in advances in veterinary care to you and your pet. As part of our comprehensive veterinary services, we offer pet microchipping and pet nutritional consultations for dogs and cats.
A pet microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely in the event they become lost. Your pet needs a form of identification that is reliable and can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged to ensure your pet has the best chance at being identified and retuned.
Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is placed between your pet’s shoulder blades and under the skin. The microchip’s unique code is registered with the national pet recovery database, which contains vital information about your pet including your name, address, and contact information.
Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control offices across the country are equipped with special electronic scanners that can detect the microchip and read the identification number. The pet owner can then be contacted and reunited with his or her pet.
