Anyone who has ever had a pet go missing knows how heartbreaking it can be. Microchips are a great way to prevent a pet from being permanently lost. Unlike a collar, they are a form of identification that can not be easily lost or removed. The microchip is encoded with an ID number and after it is implanted, that number is registered to that pet and their owner. The chip is implanted into the deep subcutaneous tissue over the shoulders. Veterinary clinics and shelters will scan pets that are brought in and can then relocate pets with their owners.
Homeagain has a few extras associated with their chips. They are recognized internationally. Some countries require microchips for pets to visit or move there; not all chips are recognized for this purpose.For a small yearly fee(it’s included with the implantation for the first year), HomeAgain will send out alerts to area pet finders, veterinary clinics, and shelters if a chipped pet is lost. You also are able to have free calls to the Pet Poison Control Hotline run by the ASPCA.
Even if you choose not to continue paying for the extra services, your pet’s microchip number is registered in their permanent database that can be accessed by anyone who finds him or her.
At Bear Lake Veterinary Clinic, after we implant the microchip, we complete the registration process for you. Your pet is registered to you right away! You are then able to go online and upload a picture and add any other information you would like. And you do want to remember to update your information if your address or phone number changes.

I am excited to announce that we are ready to see patients!
It has been a surprisingly long process and I want to thank everyone for their patience and support during the time it has taken to get up and going.
We will be planning an open house in the next few weeks. We are looking forward to seeing everyone for appointments and to celebrate at the open house.
We are getting close to opening day! Here are some before and after pictures to see the transformation from yogurt shop to Veterinary Clinic. There have been walls added to make exam rooms and the colors have been changed to create a soothing, calm atmosphere. Stay tuned for opening dates and open house dates!
And that’s not one of those silly internet web page things! Its been a long two months of engineer and permit delays but we are rapidly making progress. The two exam rooms, lobby, surgery, x-ray areas are beginning to take shape. Talks of a grand opening celebration are in the works. In between all of the planning, ordering, and organizing Dr Shellie continues to make house calls. Lets us know if we can help you!

After a long period of back and forth the new office space is leased!!!!!! It took longer than expected but we are in our next phase of the project. A builder has been hired. Plans have been sent off to the county for approval and permits. We are excited to show you our new location at 3030 East Semoran Blvd, Suite 274, Apopka, FL 32703 located in the Gator’s Plaza on the corner of Semoran Blvd (436) and Hunt Club. Our target date to open is sometime before Christmas but I am available now for consults, private appointments or even lunch!
