Microchip and Nail Clinics

In response to COVID-19, all Microchip and Nail Clinics are temporarily suspended. Microchip and nail trim services are available to those who qualify for AHS Veterinary Center services.

Join us at one of our upcoming Microchip and Nail Clinics. Animal Humane Society staff will trim your pet's nails, and upon your request, implant a microchip.

Microchips are an implanted form of identification. This inexpensive chip — the size of a grain of rice — is implanted between your pet’s shoulder blades just under the skin and is equipped with an individual scanning number. That number is then listed with your contact information in a nation-wide database that can be accessed by veterinarians and animal shelters.

Anal gland expression is also offered.
