Every year, many pets go missing from households in the River Ridge, Harahan, Jefferson, and Elmwood areas. Fortunately, River Ridge Veterinary Clinics has a permanent identification solution that offers your pet the best opportunity to be returned to you in the event they wander from your home. A microchip the size of a grain of rice is virtually inserted under your pet’s skin between their shoulder blades, and will identify them when placed under a microchip reader. Most veterinary practices and local shelters have a microchip reader required to read the microchip and identify your pet. Microchipping is an effective and cost-efficient method of having your pet returned to you in the event they are separated from you. Call River Ridge Veterinary Clinic at 504-737-6705 to schedule an appointment to have your pet microchipped today!
