Tiny microchips implanted under a pet’s skin have helped reunite thousands of pets with their
families. Every animal shelter in the area has a scanner that reads the chips and the local
police often stop by to have lost dogs scanned before taking them to the shelter. This means
that your friend will get home a lot faster from his latest adventure.
Manor Animal Hospital uses the AVID microchip system, which can be used both nationally
and internationally to identify pets. Unlike many chips that carry a yearly fee, the initial cost of
the AVID chip includes a lifetime registration. The chip information can be easily updated
online for a small fee should you move. Microchips can also be used as the permanent
identification for a lifetime dog license in the state of Pennsylvania.
