Pet Microchipping

A microchip is the size and form of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The insertion of a microchip takes only a few minutes and is extremely safe. Each microchip is one-of-a-kind and contains critical information about your pet, such as your name, address, and contact information.

Our integrated system automatically registers your pet in a national pet recovery database. Around the country, veterinary facilities, animal shelters, and animal control agencies are outfitted with special electronic scanners that can detect the microchip and read the identifying number. A brief microchip scan reveals the identifying number if a missing pet is picked up by animal control or located by a good samaritan and taken to a veterinarian. A free phone call to the pet recovery database notifies the microchip company that a lost pet has been found. The pet owner is then notified, and their pet is reunited!

Microchips can be implanted in puppies and kittens, but you should consider microchipping even if your pet is an adult. Even indoor pets might wander outside and become lost, so relying on other kinds of identification may put your pet in danger. Microchipping is a safe and effective way to ensure your pet’s safe return.
