Microchipping your dog is a great way to secure your ownership to your pet. Collars and tags can be removed or fall off, a microchip is permanent. It’s peace of mind that if your dog is missing, once found, your dog’s microchip number will enable contact directly to you. It’s the quickest and most effective way to get your beloved pet back home to you safe and sound.
Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?
A microchip is the only permanent method of connecting your personal contact information to your dog.
How it works a microchip work and is it safe?
A microchip is very safe and is implanted very quickly by injection. It works by having the microchip number registered with 24PetWatch (the most common microchip company in Canada) with all your contact information. When your pet is missing, once found, all shelters, veterinary clinics, etc. have a microchip scanner. It’s the first thing they check to reunite this found dog with their owner. Once your dog is scanned (most common injection site is between the shoulder blades), the microchip number displays and 24PetWatch is called. This microchip company then relays all your contact information to the finder, so you can be contacted immediately.
How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
Please contact us about the cost of your dog’s microchip. We recommend administering and registering them at 6 months of age when they are in for their neuter or spay surgery.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that effective May 19, 2020 some 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, heartworm testing, 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 416-752-5114. 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. Cash will not be accepted at this time.
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".
