Microchip Pet Identification
Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves the placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection.
If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, shelter, or veterinary facility they will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you.
We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet.
Canine DNA testing is now available through a blood screening called the Royal Canine Genetic Health Analysis. This test has been developed through years of scientific research into the genes that help determine the appearance and behavior traits of dogs. The test is performed with a blood sample drawn from your dog, that will go through a complex analysis to detect specific combinations of genetic markers that will identify a dog’s heritage. DNA testing can be fun for insight on a dog’s appearance, but it can also be an important aid when looking for:
- Adult weight range
- Best way to train, feed and exercise your dog
- Behavior problems associated with certain breeds
- Potential health risks associated with specific breeds
- Genetic disorders.

Animals have various nutritional requirements depending on their age, breed, and health status. Decisions regarding your pet’s nutrition should not be made without first consulting a veterinarian.
Geriatric animals have significantly different requirements than young growing puppies or kittens. Animals with diabetes or kidney disease also have different requirements.
Your veterinarian will be able to make informed decisions regarding your pet’s choice of diet given their age, breed, and health status.

And fleas don’t just stay on pets; they can bite people, too. For more information, contact us or see the flea article in the Pet Health Library on our site.

The majority of your pet’s health needs will be met at our practice; however, there are circumstances where a veterinary specialist may be required. Under these circumstances, we may direct you and your pet to a specialist who is a veterinarian with advanced knowledge in a particular area of veterinary medicine or surgery. In some cases, specialized equipment is required to perform procedures that are not routinely performed by general veterinary practitioners. Examples of veterinary specialists include ophthalmologists, oncologists, surgeons, etc.
