Pet Microchipping

Pet microchipping is becoming an increasingly popular form of animal identification and one that can help you get reunited with your furry family member.

Pet Microchipping

No pet owner wants to be unintentionally separated from their pet. But accidents can happen, such as a door being left open, a sudden loud noise frightening your pet into running in an unexpected direction, or an intrepid pet being determined to use that 3-inch gap to explore the world.

The microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification. The chip itself is very small – about the size of a grain of rice – and is implanted with a needle just under the skin between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet’s neck.

When a missing pet is found, the shelter, vet, or other recovering organization will scan the pet with a specialized pet microchip scanner to see if a microchip is present. They will look up the unique microchip number to find the owner’s contact information. Pet owners need to make sure their contact details are accurate and updated in the microchip database.
