Microchips & Pet ID Cards

We encourage our clients to microchip their pets—it’s amazing that something about the size of a grain of rice can make such a dramatic difference to families and pets who have been separated.

Whenever an animal is microchipped at Quarry Ridge Animal Hospital, we register the pet’s microchip number with a national database called Avid PETtrac™.

At Quarry Ridge Animal Hospital, we also issue complimentary identification cards for pets who have had their annual wellness exam and are up-to-date on all vaccines. You will receive a card for your wallet—similar to a driver’s license—with a photo, vital identification information, microchip number, detailed vaccine history, and your contact information, as well as ours. You’ll also receive a small tag for your keyring.

We use Avid equipment to scan for microchips and offer free pet ID cards for pets who have had their annual wellness exam and are up-to-date on all vaccines
