Microchip Clinics

Community microchip clinics have returned to the OHS!

Microchips provide a permanent means of pet identification that will not fade or be lost over time. Owner information can be accessed electronically and immediately, ensuring the rapid return of your lost pet. The OHS recommends that even microchipped pets wear a collar and tag with your contact information as a secondary and visual method of identification.

The OHS hosts microchip clinics on-site at the OHS, where pet owners can have their pets microchipped by a licenced Veterinarian. At this time, all microchip clinics are operating by appointment, on a curbside basis. Appointments are quick and take a maximum of 15 minutes (for up to two pets).
