Microchip Your Dog or Cat in Nashville, TN

Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families. This is why our veterinarians at Belle Meade Animal Hospital strongly recommend microchip implantation for your pet. It is the best way to ensure the safe return of your dog or cat if they are lost or missing. Microchips are tiny devices that provide a permanent identifier that is unique to your pet. These safe and inexpensive chips significantly increase the odds of being reunited with your pet in the event that they are lost.

Our veterinarians can microchip your dog or cat during their annual wellness exam. It is a simple procedure similar to a vaccination, and no anesthesia is required. If your pet was rescued from a shelter or adopted from another owner, we can also determine whether or not a microchip has already been implanted.

Microchip Services

Lost pets that are found by a shelter can be easily scanned for a microchip. The identifier found in this device will allow you to be contacted quickly so that your pet can return home safely. In addition to performing recoveries and reuniting pets with their owners, many chip manufacturers also have support services available 24/7 that will actively search for pets as soon as they are reported missing.

The AVMA website contains additional information and answers to frequently asked questions about microchip implantation. The Pet Microchip Lookup website is also a helpful resource for locating and reuniting owners with lost pets.

Our Reviews

    “I just took my cat to Belle Meade Animal Hospital after a bad experience at another vet and it was the best experience I could have had. The whole staff is so kind from the front office staff, to the woman who took us to the room, & Dr. Roberts.”

    “The best vet you’ll ever need. They saved my dogs life. They heeled my golden retriever’s broken foot when two other vets couldn’t. The staff from the receptionist to the vet techs to the doctors are just fabulous.”
