This service is provided by Circle Veterinary Clinic to identify for your pet. If your pet is missing or lost in the Wilmington, Delaware area or anywhere this can be a sad and frightening event. Local veterinarians and shelters are equipped with scanners to read an implanted microchip and call the national registry to facilitate the return of your beloved cat or dog as soon as possible. With this technology the microchip is inserted through a needle under the skin between the shoulder blades of your pet and provides a specific identification number for your pet. After we place the microchip it is extremely important that you register the microchip according to the information we send home at the time of the microchipping. We use the Datamars microchip because they are on the international standard and they charge no registrations or annual fees. With some pets a mild tranquilizer or sedative may enable us to place the microchip with the least amount of discomfort or stress on your pet.
