Pets required to be microchipped to have an identity and be able to track their whereabouts. As well, microchipping is required to be registered with the Dubai Municipality. In the Canadian Veterinary Clinic, we are more than glad to assist our clients with the microchipping process.
We are always committed to offering pets exemplary care and provide specialized services by a dedicated team with the mission of providing the greatest standard of care and building a long-term relationship with our clients and keep their pets in good health.
For dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets, microchips are inserted via an injection between the shoulder blades, just below the surface of the skin. The injection needle is designed in such a way that the animal experiences virtually no discomfort. In fact, using our needles, most animals don’t feel a thing.
The microchip is a tiny chip, the size of a grain of rice that is permanently implanted in your pet to ensure that it can be identified quickly. Each chip has a unique identification number that links your pet to your details so that you can get it home faster if it were to ever go missing.
The chip is powered by a scanner which sends a signal to the chip and receives the unique identification number stored on it. When a vet, shelter or humane society finds a lost or missing pet, they use the scanner to read your pet’s chip.
