A microchip is encoded with a unique identification number. It is implanted under the skin of your pet. A scanner will read that unique ID number which a computer database will recognize as your pet and provide your contact information.

HomeAgain was the first company to develop a universal scanner for microchips in the United States. Their microchips have an anti-migration technology to prevent movement of the microchip. The HomeAgain microchip is compliant with travel in the European Union and most foreign countries.

Jaffrey-Rindge Veterinary Hospital has provided the towns of Jaffrey and Rindge with universal scanners. We encourage the microchipping of all pets to help lost pets find their way back home.
