Pet Microchips Cost $10 In July

During Microchip Madness Month in July, Central Oahu pet owners can have their pet microchipped for only $10 at a dozen veterinary clinics on Oahu, including one in Wahiawa.

The annual partnership between the clinics and the Hawaiian Humane Society (HHS) aims to reduce the number of lost pets in the community. About 3,500 dogs and cats had microchip IDs inserted last year through the program.

The tiny chip – the size of a grain of rice – is injected under the skin between the animal’s shoulder blades, providing a individual code that can be read with a scanner. HHS provides the microchips, and the veterinarians waive the cost of a doctor’s visit.

Pet owners can make an appointment at Wahiawa Animal Hospital, 823 Olive Ave., at 621-7000, or visit for the complete list.
