Microchipping is a safe and harmless procedure where a veterinarian inserts a tiny microchip underneath the pet's skin. It serves as an identification method should the animal ever become lost or stolen. At Silicon Valley Pet, we provide microchipping for pets in and around the Santa Clara area. Here's what you need to know about pet microchipping and how it can benefit you and your animal.


Microchipping Procedure

Microchipping is a fast procedure that our trained veterinarians can perform at our office. The microchip is implanted between the shoulder blades under your pet's skin. We can complete the process at a regular checkup or during a procedure like a spay or neuter. Many pets do not even react to the chip being implanted. 

Is Pain Involved?

Each animal is different, but the majority of pets generally do not experience any pain during the procedure. There may be a small amount of discomfort, but we have many tricks to keep your pet calm throughout the process. We have performed numerous microchipping procedures, and we know how to get it done fast and effectively. 

How Do Microchips Work?

Microchips emit radio waves. These radio waves will provide the owner's contact information and address when scanned. All pet information is stored on a registry with the owner's information. Each microchip has a unique signature to identify your pet. You'll need to ensure that your contact information is updated whenever your phone number or address changes.

Benefits of Microchipping

A microchip gives you peace of mind knowing that you have a great chance to reconnect with your pets should they ever become lost or stolen. You'll be prepared for the unexpected with a microchip. Microchips are not tracking devices, so it's essential to keep your information updated. We can help you register your information on a database registry. 

Indoor Pets and Microchips

You may not see the need for microchipping your indoor pet. However, there's always the possibility that your animal could accidentally get outside or escape. Microchipping your pet ensures that you are reunited if the unexpected ever happens. We also recommend pet microchips, even if your pet has a collar. Collars can fall off or get damaged, making microchips the only safe and effective way of permanently storing your info on your pet.

What our patient say

  • "My dog Buster was in pain and wasn’t acting like himself. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Gill ASAP. He did a remarkable job during the initial exam to diagnose the problem and recommend additional treatments/services to relieve the pain Buster was in. After doing X-rays and blood work it was determined my little guy was suffering from intervertebral disc disease."
  • "This place was awesome. They took such good care of my giant Rottweiler during an emergency. They even called the next day to check up on her. The price was reasonable too. Went back again and the treatment was great yet again. Love that they stay open late and open everyday. So convenient. Thanks guys for treating my girl as is she was family!"
  • "I’m planning to travel with my baby cat. In order to do that she has to do a Rabies Neutralization Antibody Testing from certified lab. I was lucky to reach out Dr. Gill. He explained to me throughly and helped me to get it done. I would recommend Dr. Gill to everyone who needs professional and friendly help on their loved pets."
  • "I’m very happy with the service and prices of the Silicon Valley Pet Clinic. I have gotten quotes from other vets around and SVPC offers the best value! I took my dog in to get some growths removed and get this teeth cleaned."
  • "My 16 yr old cat Pete had some green discharge coming from his eye. I recently brought a feral kitten in to care for that my cousin found. I figured that Pete probably got scratched in the eye from the little guy."
  • "I was very nervous to have her spayed, especially after going through an episode of Giardia. She has been dealing with poop that is not consistent and we are doing some probiotic treatment."
