Losing a pet is stressful, that’s why our Marietta GA vet uses HomeAgain; a pet hotline and 24/7 service to assist when pets go missing.

The microchip, which is about the size of grain of rice, is placed in your pet encoded with information on a tiny bar code. It identifies the owner’s contact information, as well as information about your pet. It is kept in a permanent database that can be scanned as soon as a dog or cat is found at any veterinarian office, local pound or shelter.
Your pet’s microchip ID code is unique and one of a kind. The code is stored in your pet’s profile along with owner contact information. This is desperately valuable information if your pet ever becomes lost.
