Dog getting microchipped

Microchipping a Dog

Did you know a microchip implant could help ensure your pet’s safe return home if lost? We commonly receive notices and phone calls about missing and lost pets, many of whom are never reunited with their owners. A microchip implant is a simple, safe and affordable procedure that can be done in only a few minutes while your pet is awake.

A microchip is an internationally recognized form of identification for your pet. Should it ever be necessary, a microchip is the best insurance for having your lost pet quickly returned to you.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?

Every year, hundreds of lost animals end up at the local humane society or with animal services. A microchip ensures they make it home safe and sound as they would be easily identified.

How does microchipping work and is it safe for my dog?

A small microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice and is implanted under the skin between the shoulder blades. When scanned, this chip reveals a number registered to you on an international databank.
