Microchip Placement

Highly recommended (and encouraged) by our veterinarians, the AVID Microchip Identification System provides a means of permanent identification for your beloved pet. 

The AVID retrieval system involves a quick, simple procedure of injecting a tiny microchip, the size of a grain of rice, under the skin between the shoulder blades of your dog or cat. 

Each chip is coded with a special 10-digit code registered with the PETtrac which is a globalized computer tracking system.  If your pet ever gets lost, one quick scan by any Police Department or Veterinary Hospital will identify who the pet belongs to will be returned to you quicker than any other way! 

"Preiser Animal Hospital is currently only charging $50 for this service" so call our office now and schedule an appointment to have your pet microchipped today or request that this be done the next time you board your animal with us (847) 827-5200
