Yucca Veterinary Medical CenterMicrochip Pet Identification: A Standard of Safety for Your Pet

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 pet identification.

This is why the team at Yucca Veterinary Medical Center considers a Save This Life microchip pet ID 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.

A pet microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, 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.

End-of-Life Planning

For many pet owners, thinking about their pet's final days is difficult and emotional. However, taking the time to plan, as hard as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.

We encourage you to talk with our Belen veterinary team about end-of-life issues before they become an urgent matter. Find out 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. All of us at Yucca Veterinary Medical Center will do our best to help you prepare for this challenging time with compassion and sensitivity.

Yucca Veterinary Medical CenterA Veterinary Pharmacy You Can Trust

To make sure you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications, Yucca Veterinary Medical Center has an in-house pharmacy. When you fill your pet's prescriptions with us, you can be assured your pet will receive precisely the right medication, at the right dose, and in the right form as quickly as possible. We will 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 – added services you can't expect from a drug store or supermarket. 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, flea and tick control products, and heartworm preventives to meet the needs of your pet. Refills are easy, too. Simply submit a request online or give us a call at (505) 864-6001.

Health Certificates for Your Pet

As a part of our effort to provide you with the most comprehensive pet healthcare services, we also provide health certificates, which are required when traveling with your pet inside and outside the United States.

If you are planning to travel internationally, we ask that you investigate your destination's requirements prior to your appointment. Because each destination country has different requirements for your pet's entry, we must rely on you to provide the list of requirements that need to be met for traveling; we can only accommodate the guidelines you provide. We also strongly recommend you contact your airline to learn their pet travel requirements.

Yucca Veterinary Medical Center cannot assume responsibility for ensuring all the requirements are met for your situation and cannot be held responsible for quarantine, denial of entry, or costs incurred due to unfulfilled requirements for your pet.
