What is Microchipping?

A microchip is a tiny device about the size of a grain of rice implanted underneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. This simple procedure takes only a few minutes and is incredibly safe for your pet. Each microchip contains a unique identification number linked to your contact information, name, and address.

How Microchipping Works

When a lost pet is found and brought to a veterinary hospital, animal shelter, or animal control office equipped with a microchip scanner, the microchip can be quickly detected and scanned. The identification number stored on the microchip is then used to access your contact information from a national pet recovery database. This enables the facility to reunite you with your pet promptly.

Benefits of Pet Microchipping

  • Reliable Identification: Unlike collars and ID tags that can break or become lost, a microchip provides a permanent form of identification for your pet.
  • Increased Chance of Recovery: Microchipping significantly enhances the likelihood of your pet being reunited with you if they become lost or stray.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your pet has a microchip provides peace of mind, knowing that they have a reliable means of identification in case of emergencies.
  • Suitable for All Pets: Microchipping is suitable for pets of all ages, from kittens and puppies to adult pets.

When to Microchip Your Pet

Microchipping can be done at any age, making it an ideal form of identification for pets of all life stages. Whether you have a new puppy or kitten or an adult pet, microchipping offers valuable protection against the risk of being lost or separated from your family.
