To check in for your scheduled appointment or medication pick up, please call the front desk at 860-658-1931. Currently, our waiting room is closed, however, we are allowing one family member to accompany their pet in during their doctor visit.
A properly worn face mask will be required to enter the building. Technician appointments, drop offs, and food/medication pick-up will remain curb side.
We are here to provide the best possible care for all of our clients and patients but please expect extended wait times. We appreciate your patience as we all deal with these challenging times.
A microchipped pet is a safe pet
We offer pet microchipping for dogs and cats. A microchipped pet is a safe pet – and one that’s much more likely to return home if ever lost.
What is a microchip?
A microchip is an electronic device that’s only about the size of a grain of rice. It gets implanted between the shoulder blades and remains there indefinitely, although it is possible for a microchip to migrate. The implant procedure is relatively painless and it’s as quick and easy as receiving a shot.
How does microchip identification actually work?
Every microchip comes with its own unique ID number. Once it’s implanted, you create an account with the company’s registry to make sure your contact information is associated with that number.
Most veterinarians and animal shelters have microchip scanners that allow them to read the chip number and get in touch with the microchip company to report the pet as found. The microchip company then reaches out to the owner to let them know their pet has been located and where.
Does my pet really need a microchip?
We highly recommend it. You may be surprised to learn that 1 in 3 pets get lost over the course of their lifetime and, without identification, 90% of them don’t come home. Luckily, that can be prevented, especially because almost all humane organizations now utilize microchip scanners.
