Microchips and Registration

Microchips and Registration

A pet will always be well served by wearing a collar and ID tag, but in the event a pet is lost and the collar missing or damaged, the only permanent identification a pet has is a microchip. Microchips, however, do not store your contact information; they provide only an ID number which then must be registered with a recovery service that knows how to contact you. Unfortunately, 60% of owners who have microchipped their pets have not registered the chip. In order to prevent the chip registration from falling to the bottom of the To Do List, Janssen Veterinary Clinic will now take care of the registration process for you. You will then receive an email confirmation from the registration service with instructions about how to update your contact information in the event of a change.

If you think your pet has a microchip, but don’t know if it’s registered, stop in for a scan and we can point you in the right direction. If your pet needs a microchip, call for an appointment.


Microchip Package: Includes the microchip, implantation, and lifetime registration of the chip. Our staff will take care of the registration process and you will receive a confirmation email from HomeAgain.com. Also included is a one-year free access to Home Again Membership services.
