HOMEAGAIN MICROCHIP SYSTEM
Animal Clinic East is very excited to offer the latest
in lost pet protection and recovery, the HomeAgain
Developed from years of thoughtful
planning and extensive research, HomeAgain has several
advantages over previous identification systems such as
tags or tattoos.
Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. Your
veterinarian simply injects a microchip for pets, about the
size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your
pets skin between the shoulder blades. The process is
similar to a routine shot, takes only a few seconds, and
your pet will not react any more than he would to a
vaccination. No anesthetic is required.
A HomeAgain microchip is a permanent pet ID. The microchip
itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the
life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner
over the pets shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low
radio frequency that provides the power necessary to
transmit the microchips unique cat or dog ID code and
positively identify the pet.
HomeAgain is the only dog & cat
microchipping product on the market today that has the
Bio-Bond patented anti-migration feature to help ensure
that the microchip will stay in place so that it may be
easily located and scanned. If your pet gets lost and
is taken to an animal shelter or veterinarian, they
will scan the microchip to read its unique dog or cat
code. This is the number used by HomeAgain to identify
the pet and retrieve your contact information, which is
used to contact you and reunite you with your pet.
One in three family pets will get lost
during its lifetime, and without identification, 90%
will not return home.
Over the years HomeAgain has reunited one million lost dogs
and cats with their owners.
Proactive Pet Recovery helps you look for
your pet. HomeAgain sends out lost pet alerts to
veterinarians, shelters, and Pet Rescuers surrounding the
area in which your pet was lost. HomeAgain also allows you
to easily create a "Lost Pet" poster that you can print and
post in the neighborhood.
