Little Rock Veterinarians Microchip Over 400 Pets in 2 Days!

In early March Dr. Barron, Dr. Charney and our wonderful staff spent 2 days at Bass Pro Shops in Little Rock as part of the Little Rock Animal Village’s microchip program.  Neither rain nor, well, rain and more rain kept us from microchipping over 400 pets across two days!

We love being a part of this program and we feel that as a part of the Little Rock Veterinarian community it is important to help pet owners learn the benefits of microchipping your pets.  If you’d like to know more about the benefits of microchipping your pets as important way to keep track of them if they are ever lost, please contact us today.

                                           

                                           

                                           

                                           

Microchipping Little Rock’s Pets

On August 30 Dr. Brian Barron and the Staff of SRVC spent the day microchipping pets from Little Rock and across Central Arkansas at the Bass Pro Shops in Little Rock.  We’re able to do this event a couple of times per year thanks to our partners at Bass Pro Shops and at Friends of the Animal Village.

We microchipped over 100 pets during this event.

Also helped Friends of the Animal Village promote Pet Adoption.

Microchipping is an important part of responsible pet ownership.  With microchips SRVC and other Little Rock Veterinarians and Veterinarians across the country would be able to reunite you and your loved ones were they ever lost.  To learn more about microchipping read on our site or schedule an appointment today!
