Medical Aid & Microchipping

MEDICAL AID

Medical aid for pets enables us to cope with unexpected medical bills. With all the new technology that is available, the question nowadays is often not “can I treat my pet” but “can I afford to treat my
pet”. Pet medical aids give you access to modern technologies and a standard of care very close to what you would want for yourself. There are two companies offering pet health insurance at the
moment:

MICROCHIPPING

This is a small cylindrical shaped object, about the size of a rice grain that is implanted under your pet’s skin. The animal doesn’t notice that the chip is there and if your pet is ever lost and taken to a rescue shelter or another vet, they will pick up your details on scanning your pet. We are currently using Backhome microchips. See www.virbac.co.za for more info.
