We offer HomeAgain microchips for those interested. Placing a microchip under your pet’s skin is a great way to help ensure that if your pet is lost, it may be returned to you.
A microchip emits a radio signal and when scanned will display its individual number. This number can then be accessed in a database which is linked to your contact information. An annual fee of around $25 payable directly to HomeAgain ensures that you will be contacted in the event that your pet is found lost. It is recommended to keep your contact information current with HomeAgain. The price of a microchip at Tongass Veterinary includes your first year’s membership with HomeAgain.
Documentation of a microchip is also required by many foreign countries and some states for admission with a health certificate.
