Microchipping: A Standard of Safety for Your Pet

A lost pet is a frightening situation with often devastating consequences. More than 10 million pets get lost each year and approximately 90% of those found would not have been returned to their owners without some form of permanent lost pet identification.

This is why the team at Derry Animal Hospital considers Save This Life microchip pet IDs a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. With the Save This Life microchip registration, you receive the following:

  • Aluminum, lifetime replaceable ID tag stamped with your pet’s unique microchip number
  • Unlimited free updates to keep contact information and pet photo current
  • Lost Pet Medical Insurance coverage for up to $1,000 in emergency care
  • Registration in Save This Life’s Immortal Pet database (Any pet’s microchip ID number can then be searched in popular search engines like Google, and the owner’s contact information can be found, minimizing recovery time for a lost pet)
  • An email or text message instantly if someone finds your pet.
  • Bilingual toll free live Save This Life operator 24 hours a day 365 days a year.

Remember, your contact information can be updated any time, and it is important to remember to do so whenever your information changes. If your pet is lost, the microchip can be scanned by animal control officers, at shelters, and at veterinary hospitals in the U.S. and in many foreign countries.

This safe, permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant, requires no annual fee and can save you and your pet days, weeks or even years of anguish.


endEnd-of-Life Planning

For many pet owners, even thinking about their pet’s final days is difficult and emotional.

We encourage you to talk with our veterinary team about these issues before they become urgent. Learn about your options, including our crematory services, make key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet’s record. Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.

All of us at Derry Animal Hospital will do our best to help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.

A Veterinary Pharmacy You Can Trust

Ensuring you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of our veterinary practice. Derry Animal Hospital offers an in-house pharmacy, which means your pet will receive precisely the right medication, at the right dose, and in the right form as quickly as possible.

We will also provide you with detailed instructions on the medication’s use, discuss any side effects or interactions and even give your pet the first dose if possible. You can feel confident all the medications we dispense were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under the right conditions.

We maintain an extensive inventory of prescription diets, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products, and Heartworm preventatives to meet your pet’s needs. Refills are easy, too. Simply submit a request online or give us a call at (603) 432-3700.
