veterinarian microchipping a cat


If your pet ever gets lost, you’re much more likely to be reunited with them if they are microchipped.

More than 10 million cats and dogs are lost or stolen in the United States every year, and very few of them ever find their way back to their owners’ arms.

Having your pet microchipped only takes a few seconds, but doing so could save you and your beloved pet from a lifetime of heartache. At Burlingame Family Pet Hospital, we offer microchipping in Burlingame and use HomeAgain microchips to keep dogs and cats safe.

What to Expect

When you bring your pet in to be microchipped, we will use a syringe to insert a tiny HomeAgain microchip in the skin between their shoulder blades.

Each chip is only about the size of a grain of rice, so there is no need for surgery or anesthesia. The process feels similar to receiving a vaccination, and it takes just a few seconds. Once in place, the microchip is a form of permanent identification for your furry family member.

If your pet gets lost and is taken to a veterinary hospital or animal shelter, an employee will scan them for a chip. Each chip has an identification number linked to an online account. Once set up, the account contains your contact information. As long as the information in your online account is correct and up to date, someone will reach out to reunite you with your pet.
