Pet Microchip Identification

A lost pet is a frightening situation with often devastating consequences. Studies have shown more than 10 million pets get lost each year and approximately 90 percent of those found would not have been returned to their owners without some form of permanent pet identification.

This is why the team at Animal Care Center of North Jersey and Companion Veterinary Hospital of Wayne considers pet microchip identification to be a fundamental way to protect your pet and an important part of responsible pet ownership. We use the Home Again and Pet Link microchip systems. Each microchip registers the animal with a unique identification number, which is filed in a database with your contact information. The contact information can be updated anytime, 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 as well.

This safe, reliable and permanent pet identification takes less than 10 seconds to implant and can save you and your pet days, weeks or more of fear and anguish.

Pet Health Certificates

Animal Care Center of North Jersey and Companion Veterinary Hospital of Wayne provide Interstate and International health certificates. We ask that you investigate your destination's requirements prior to your appointment. Many countries require Rabies titer testing and microchip identification. We are able to provide these services for your pet.

Because each destination country has different requirements for your pet’s entry, you are responsible for supplying the list of requirements that need to be met for traveling. Animal Care Center of North Jersey and Companion Veterinary Hospital of Wayne cannot assume responsibility for ensuring that all the requirements are met for your particular situation and cannot be held responsible for quarantine, denial of entry or costs incurred due to unfulfilled requirements for your pet.

In-House Pharmacy

As the prescribing veterinarian for your pet's medications, we are able to ensure there is a direct link between the exam room and the pharmacy. This means your pet will receive the right medication, at the right dose, in the right form as quickly as possible. We will also be able to easily guide you on the medication's use as well as monitor its effectiveness. You can also feel confident all the medications we dispense were obtained from safe, reliable sources and stored under the right conditions.

We maintain a complete inventory of pharmaceuticals, vitamins, shampoos, flea and tick control products and heartworm preventives to meet the needs of your pet. We also carry a full line of prescription diets. If your pet requires a prescription diet we do not carry, we can easily order it for you.

Ensuring that you have convenient and timely access to competitively priced medications is an important aspect of the veterinary practice.

Refills are easy, too. Simply give us a call or use our online refill request form.

North Jersey Veterinary House Calls

To provide you with the most comprehensive veterinary care possible, we also offer veterinary house calls on a case-by-case basis. Simply, there are times when it is best that you and your pet remain at home where you both are most relaxed and comfortable and we come to you.

Services we are able to provide at your home include pet wellness examinations, vaccinations, routine medical care, blood draws and other general services that do not require diagnostic and other medical technology. Certainly the most difficult, though most important, house call we make is when a beloved pet has reached his or her last day. Being at home, surrounded by loving and familiar faces, is a comfort to you and your pet and an important aspect of the hospitals’ veterinary services.

End-of-Life Pet Care

For many pet owners, even thinking about their pet’s final days is difficult and emotional. Animals play significant roles in the family. This bond, born from years of loyal companionship, can make this time particularly hard to bear.

We encourage you to talk with the veterinary healthcare team about these issues before they become an urgent matter. Learn more about your options, including crematory and burial services, make some key decisions ahead of time, and ask us to add this information to your pet's record. Taking the time to plan, as challenging as it may be, will lessen the pain and stress for you and your pet.

All of us at Animal Care Center of North Jersey and Companion Veterinary Hospital of Wayne will help you prepare for these important issues with the compassion and sensitivity they require.
