Microchipping is a permanent way of identifying your pet. At the time of the implant, the veterinary office will submit your basic information to the Eidap Animal Registry. If you move or change your phone number, it is a good idea to update this with the microchipping company.
The microchipping process of identification makes the identified animal’s contact information readily available to veterinarians, animal shelter, and dog pounds. The registry is available 24 hours/day 365 days/year via the internet providing all the necessary information needed to reunite a lost animal with the owner.
How does a microchip work and is it safe for my dog?
A microchip is a small object inserted under the skin of your animal, and it can then be read with a microchip scanner. Each microchip has an individual number assigned to it, and the number will be recorded in your pet’s file and registered with the microchip company.
How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
Please call Mill Bay Veterinary Hospital for pricing.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 25, 2020 the restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
3. ONLINE CONSULTATIONS ARE AVAILABLE
If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.
