Microchip Pet Identification
Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost.
Microchipping involves the 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. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection.
If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, other veterinary offices, or animal control facility, they will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store. We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on all pets.
