How Microchipping Works

The procedure for inserting a microchip is quick and safe, similar to a routine vaccination. We implant the chip between the shoulder blades using a sterile needle. It’s a one-time procedure that provides lifelong identification for your pet. Each microchip has its own ID number that needs to be registered in a national pet recovery database. This number links to your contact information, which you can update anytime without replacing the chip.

The Benefits of Microchipping Your Pet

  • Permanent Identification: Collars and tags can fall off or become illegible, but a microchip will last your pet’s lifetime.
  • Quick Recovery: Veterinary clinics and animal shelters across the country are equipped with scanners that can read your pet’s microchip ID. This can speed up the recovery process so you and your pet can reunite sooner.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your pet has a permanent form of identification can provide significant peace of mind if your pet ever goes missing.
