Metairie Pet Microchipping
The reality of runaway pets is that without proper identification, 90% of them will never return home. Collars break, and pet identification tags can become worn. A pet microchip is your pet's permanent identification, and they give your pet the best chance of coming back to you.
Benbow Veterinary Services recommends the American Kennel Club's (AKC) Reunite Microchip. A very important advantage to you is that when we implant an AKC Reunite microchip in your pet, it includes the cost of the chip, the cost to implant the chip, and registration of the chip (free). Unlike many other microchips, there are no annual fees associated with the AKC Reunite microchip.
BVS also has an AKC Companion Animal Recovery microchip scanner that is capable of scanning pets for various types of microchips in order to help identify the owners of lost pets.
