Microchipping your dog is becoming a pretty standard practice across North America and is one of the best sources of identification for your dog. Microchipping your dog involves inserting a small microchip under the skin. The microchip itself is about the size of a grain of rice.
Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?
Even the most vigilant of owners can have their back turned for a minute, and that’s all it can take for your pet to make a run for it. Many furry friends have found their way back home thanks to their microchip.
How does a microchip work and is it safe?
Most veterinary clinics and shelters have microchip scanners. If a lost pet is brought to us, the first step is to scan the pet for a microchip. The microchip number can then be searched through an online service that will advise us how to contact you, the owner, and get your furry friend back home.
How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
For more information on our pricing, please call Acadia Veterinary Hospital.
With recent changes to restrictions on businesses, we are pleased to advise that some restrictions on veterinary practices have been lifted. Based on these changes, below are some important updates to our operating policies.
1. WE CAN NOW SEE ALL CASES BY APPOINTMENT ONLY
This includes vaccines, wellness exams, blood work, heartworm testing, spays and neuters, dental services, and more!
2. SAFETY MEASURES TO KEEP EVERYONE SAFE
We are allowing 1 client per pet into the hospital (up to a maximum of 3 clients in our hospital at one time). When you arrive, please remain outside the hospital and use your cell phone to call us so a staff member can meet you at the door and bring you and your pet into the hospital for an examination.
We ask that you wear a mask when in our building and encourage you to bring your own. While in the exam room please minimize contact and be mindful of physical distancing in the confined space.
You may choose to continue with the "closed-door" approach and we can obtain a history over the phone and then collect the pet at the door for the exam. The Veterinarian will then call you to discuss the recommended treatment plan. After your appointment, a staff member will return your pet to you outside and take care of any needed medications and payment.
Credit cards as the preferred payment method.
Curbside pickup of food and medication (unless you have used our online store and are having your order delivered directly to your home). To place an order through our online store, visit our website and click on "Online Store".
