Valley West Animal Hospital offers and strongly recommends that all pets, dogs, cats, birds and exotics get microchipped. We all would like to believe that our pets would never get out or run away. Unfortunately, accidents happen. If your pet is microchipped, it will significantly increase the probability of your pet’s return. The company provides you with all types of posters and other materials to help ensure the return of your pet if it is lost. With each microchip you purchase from us and we implant, we provide you with a tag for your pet, paperwork for your files about the microchip for that particular pet and the first year registration at no charge to you. When we register you and your pet, we provide our phone number as one of your emergency numbers as another means of ensuring your pet makes it safely home, just in case you are out of town or cannot be reached for any reason.
