A pet microchip creates a forever bond between you and the pet you love. And together with the HomeAgain pet recovery system, you’ll give your pet the best chance of coming back home to you.
Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. We simply inject a microchip for pets, about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your pets skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine shot, and takes only a few seconds.
A HomeAgain microchip is permanent pet ID. The microchip itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner over the pets shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchips unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet.
If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or veterinarian, they will scan the microchip to read its unique dog or cat ID code. This is the number used by HomeAgain to identify the pet and retrieve your contact information, which is used to contact you and reunite you with your pet.

Dr. Hickin by far has been the best veterinarian I've brought one of my pets to. She went out of her way on numerous occasions to help me with my elderly cat Jack. She listens and takes her time. You never feel rushed or a burden. It has been a long time since I've worked with a doctor that showed they cared this much about their patients. Thank you Dr. Hickin for everything.
