An excellent way to permanently identify your pet is with a microchip. If your pet is ever lost the person that finds them will check for a microchip, which will have your pet's identifying information -- including where your pet lives so they can make it home safe and sound. Microchips are very small chips that are inserted with a syringe just under the skin between the shoulder blades. It takes just a minute to do and can easily be added to any surgical procedure.
HomeAgain microchips are designed to last your pet’s entire lifetime, and once enrolled, they link to a permanent record of your owner information. Your microchip comes with a personal listing in HomeAgain's lost pet database, and this translates to anytime/anywhere pet recovery services. Over 50,000 vets and animal shelters across the country are equipped with scanners that can read your pet’s microchip. So, HomeAgain members can breathe a little easier knowing their lost cat or dog can be identified whether he’s 3 or 3,000 miles away from home.
Your pet’s microchip ID code, just like your pet, is one of a kind. When your lost pet is taken to an animal shelter or veterinary clinic, they will scan your pet for a microchip and will read its unique code. This code is stored with your pet’s profile and linked to your contact information in HomeAgain's pet database—forever.
After your pet’s microchip ID is scanned, you’ll receive a call from HomeAgain about their whereabouts. Rest assured that your listing in HomeAgain's pet database is exclusive to your pet. When you receive a call from HomeAgain, it is because your pet has been scanned. HomeAgain offers personalized and distinctive pet protection services, and protecting your best friend is what the Animal and Bird Hospital of Clearwater does best.
Keeping your pet’s profile up to date—especially with your current contact information and a recent photo of your pet—is one of the best ways to protect your pet. HomeAgain members have unlimited access to log in and update their pet profile at HomeAgain.com.
