Microchip mandatory for pets on post

Fort Huachuca officials remind Mountain Vista Communities, or MVC, residents that, per post policy, registering and microchipping dogs and cats kept on post are mandatory.

The process, which costs $37, includes the microchipping procedure, a user fee and a wellness exam.

For questions about the process or to schedule an appointment, call 533.2767.

Housing occupants have five days to register new pets with the MVC office, which requires prior proof of registration with the veterinary clinic.
