Each year, millions of pets go missing and never make their way home, our team at Riverview want your pets to get home to you. Microchipping is one of the newest ways to ensure your pet is returned to you should they get lost.
Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?
Ensuring your pet has ID is the best way to have a happy ending should your pet get lost. Often times we put collars with tags on our pets, but what happens if these get lost? Microchipping is fast, easy and a permanent means of ensuring your pet doesn’t stay lost for long. Each time a stray pet is brought into Riverview Animal Hospital, we check to see if they have a microchip. If they do, we can track down their owners and get them home safe and sound. If you would like to know more about microchipping our team can help.
How does a microchip work and is it safe?
Microchips are a small chip that is inserted under the skin, between the shoulder blades. It is a very safe procedure and can be done when you are in for an appointment, or often times, owners elect to do the procedure when their pet is being spayed or neutered.
How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
Microchipping is a very cost-effective way to ensure your pet’s safety. Please contact us so we can give you a quote 506-387-4015.
Riverview Animal Hospital has recently undergone a lot of changes! Renovations have turned our hospital into a completely new one! Not only have we doubled in size, but we have added new departments within the treatment areas of the hospital.

As part of this commitment, effective immediately, Riverview Animal Hospital will be instituting the following precautionary protocol to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission.

WE ARE CHANGING OUR EMERGENCY SYSTEM INTO A TRUE TRIAGE-BASED SYSTEM
We will no longer have suggested appointment times for urgent care situations
Please continue to call ahead to let us know that your pet is having an emergency and that you are on your way.
For our emergency hospital-evenings and weekends will be walk in only. Your pet will be triaged by a Veterinary technician, who will determine the level of care that is needed for your pet. Critical patients will be our top priority, and will be seen first.
This will increase wait times for patients that are triaged as non-urgent.
Thank you in advance for your understanding.
