Microchip

Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip.

If your pet becomes lost and is taken to a humane society, a shelter, or a veterinary hospital, your pet will be scanned. The chip will provide information to locate you, the owner.
