Why should you microchip your pet? Pet microchipping is the permanent identification method of choice to help get a pet home if ever missing. Tattoos fade or become hidden by pet's hair, and collar tags can fall off or break. Once implanted with a microchip your pet has a permanent, unique ID number for its lifetime.
Pet microchipping is a simple procedure that requires no anesthetic. The microchip, only about the size of a grain of rice, is implanted with a needle just beneath the pet's skin between the shoulder blades. After getting a microchip, it is imperative to have the microchip ID number immediately enrolled in a recovery service (free with service fee) to ensure you are contacted when your pet, if ever lost, is found.
The microchip itself has no internal energy source. Animal shelters, animal control officers and veterinarians run a microchip scanner over a lost pet's shoulder blades to look for a microchip. When the microchip is detected, the scanner displays the microchip's unique ID number. This ID number is used to identify your pet and retrieve your contact information to call you and reunite you with your pet.

We encourage you to keep your records updated so that we can quickly return your pet home.
