Microchip Pet Identification

Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection.

If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a veterinary clinic , an animal shelter or a humane society, it customary to scan your pet immediately for the chip and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store.

Microchipping can be done at any time but it is usually done at the time of spaying or neutering of your pet.

We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet
