Microchipping has become a safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that you’re pet becomes lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic glass encapsulated 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, the humane society 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 recommend you use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet.
