Vets Offer Cheaper Microchips

A microchip in a furry friend can save time, money and possibly even lives, if a pet gets separated from its owner.

That’s why West Oahu veterinarians, in partnership with Hawaiian Humane Society, are offering a reduced-cost $10 microchip implant to all cat and dog owners through July 31.

Every animal receives a unique microchip number that is registered in an Oahu database, enabling organizations like HHS to easily identify lost animals.

The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is implanted beneath the skin between a cat or dog’s shoulder blades.

Participating West Oahu clinics are Animal House Vet Center (689-1797), Kapolei Pet Hospital (462-8040), Newtown Veterinary Clinic (488-3667) and Waipahu Waikele Pet Hospital (671-7387). Pet owners should schedule an appointment before bringing their pet in.
