Microchip Law

On April 30, 2015, the San Antonio City Council unanimously approved the elimination of the City’s pet licensing program. The City’s licensing program involved annual registration with the city including providing proof of rabies vaccination and pets wearing a metal license tag.

An ordinance amendment was approved making a registered microchip the primary means of licensing for pets living within the San Antonio city limits. Residents do not have to formally register their pet’s microchip with the city or Animal Care Services. Microchips only need to be registered with the microchip manufacturer.

For more information on the updated Microchip Ordinance, please visit the City’s Chapter 5 Animal Laws.

Here, at Eagle Veterinary Hospital, we offer the Save This Life microchip for the low cost of $65.00. This includes a lifetime registration with the company. Unlike some manufacturers, you only have to register once rather than every year. You only need to change the registration if you move or if there is a change in contact phone numbers. One special feature of this particular chip is that you do not have to go to the manufacturer website and call to get the information of the pet. Simply Google the chip number and all the information is at your finger tips 24/7, 365 days of the year!
