Does your pet have a microchip? If so, is it properly registered? We would suggest that you check for yourself. Visit PetMicrochipLookUp.org and see what others find if they find your pet and scan him or her. A large number of animal facilities, including Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital®, use this website to locate owners when pets are found and a microchip is present.
Using this website, you can see if your pet’s microchip is registered to you or to the business that implanted the microchip. If your pet’s microchip is not registered to you, or at all, you will see that the website lists the manufacturer of the microchip it believes to be correct, and a phone number where you can contact them. You may, depending on the microchip number, see more than one suggested manufacturer listed.
If you find that your pet’s microchip is not correctly registered to you, please contact the manufacturer immediately to do so, or you can use one of a few online sites to register your pet for free. One such site is www.Found.org. With Hurricane Season upon us (June 1st through November 30th) and with the current threat of a tropical storm in the Atlantic, now is a perfect time to make sure your pet’s registration is up-to-date.
When your pet’s microchip was implanted, you should have received information regarding the microchip, including manufacturer (or type of chip) and a microchip number. This is the information you will need to register your pet. If your pet received his microchip at Claws & Paws Veterinary Hospital® and you don’t have this information, contact us at 281.997.1426 and we can provide this information to you. If your pet received his or her microchip elsewhere, but you don’t have this information, bring your pet in (no appointment necessary) and we’ll scan the microchip and provide you with the number at no charge.
Don’t wait another minute! Check this site now. A few moments of your time now could save countless hours of work and worry should your pet become lost.
If your pet doesn’t have a microchip currently, we can get you in and out in a matter of minutes and for only $25.00, your pet will have his or her own unique microchip number and be registered within hours. Call now to schedule an appointment, or use this link to request one online.
