Pet Microchipping

A microchipped pet is a safe pet.

We offer pet microchipping for dogs and cats. A microchipped pet is a safe pet – and one that’s much more likely to return home if ever lost.

What is a microchip?

A microchip is an electronic device that’s only about the size of a grain of rice. It gets implanted between the shoulder blades and remains there indefinitely, although it is possible for a microchip to migrate. The implant procedure is relatively painless and it’s as quick and easy as receiving a shot.

How does microchip identification actually work?

Every microchip comes with its own unique ID number. Once it’s implanted, you create an account with the company’s registry to make sure your contact information is associated with that number.

Most veterinarians and animal shelters have microchip scanners that allow them to read the chip number and get in touch with the microchip company to report the pet as found. The microchip company then reaches out to the owner to let them know their pet has been located and where.

Does my pet really need a microchip?

Microchipping your pet gives it an 85% chance of being returned to you when lost. The procedure is a simple injection under the skin between the shoulder blades and should be performed “as soon as your pet can run faster than you”! Registration in the national database provides lifelong protection. Remember to always update phone numbers and addresses.
