Microchipping is a form of identification that can’t be lost or damaged. This technology provides safe identification for your pet should he or she get lost or escape the safety of your home or yard. A small transponder is implanted in your pet’s skin. Measuring about the size of a grain of rice, this transponder contains information that is scanned by an animal control officer or shelter, so your pet can be returned to you without delay.
In a painless procedure, the microchip will be inserted between your pet’s shoulder blades, where it is safe and secure. This requires no special post-procedure care or anesthetic. A microchip for your pet is easy to place, and your pet will experience no discomfort – but will be protected.
