Microchips and International Travel for Pets

Dr. Christ checking for a microchip

At the Broadway Animal Hospital of Riverdale we endorse the use of microchips to provide permanent identification of all pets. This helps to recover lost pets and fulfills a requirement for international pet travel. Microchipping is performed daily with the use of a local anesthetic to minimize discomfort to the patient. Dr. Luckow is a USDA accredited veterinarian which allows him to perform all necessary pre travel exams and certify the required documents. Our staff is well versed in the preparation of the forms necessary for travel.
