Microchipping Services

Microchipping Services

No matter how much care and attention you take, accidents can happen that are totally beyond your control. Furry friends are naturally curious, and they may get away from you and become lost in just a split second. Traditional nametags or collars just won’t do anymore. They can break off or wear down. These days, we have microchipping as a permanent means of ID for your pets. To learn more about this device, please call us at (780) 475-9225.

What it is a pet microchip?
A microchip is a device that contains your contact info and vital details about your pet’s health. It’s a permanent form of identification, but it is not a GPS. It cannot track your pet’s specific location and whereabouts.

How do pet microchips work?
In the unfortunate event your pet becomes lost, the veterinary clinic or animal rescue group that finds them can scan the microchip and send the information to the manufacturer. Then, the manufacturer can extract the information, and give it to the team that found your pet so they can now have a means of contacting you.

Is pet microchipping safe?
Absolutely. The microchip is made up of materials that are 100% compatible with your pet’s body. It is also very small – just the size of a small grain of rice. We usually place the chip between your pet’s shoulder blades, just underneath their skin. Because it is so painless, no anesthesia is needed and most pets will feel like they are just getting an injection during the procedure.

Dear Clients,

With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, below are some important updates to our operating policies.


This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!


  • Continue our "closed waiting room" policy to protect our clients and staff. When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us. We will take a history of your pet's health and discuss any concerns. A staff member will then meet you outside to bring your pet into the hospital for an examination. The Veterinarian will call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside, and take care of any needed medications and payment.
  • Continue the use of credit cards as the preferred payment method.
  • Continue with curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".

    If you wish to connect with a veterinarian via message, phone or video, visit our website and follow the "Online Consultation" link.


  • Monday to Saturday: 8:30 am - 5:30 pm
  • Sundays: CLOSED
  • Note: We are closed daily for lunch between 1:00 - 2:00 pm.

    Thank you for your patience and understanding and we look forward to seeing you and your furry family members again!
