Microchipping

 

Each year, thousands of pets go missing and many don’t make it back home. Even if your pet wears a collar and identification tag, collars can break off and tags can become damaged and unreadable. Your pet needs a form of identification that is reliable and can’t get lost, stolen, or damaged. A microchip is a safe, simple form of identification that can significantly increase the chance that your pet will return safely.  

 

A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed underneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet—including your name, address, and contact information.

 

This simple procedure offers your pet a lifetime of protection should he or she become lost. We use AKC-brand microchips, because they are high quality, and a portion of the proceeds is donated to worthy pet charities.

 

Young puppies and kittens can receive microchips, but even if your pet is already an adult, you should consider microchipping. Even indoor pets can get outside accidentally and get lost, so if you’re relying on other forms of identification, you could be placing your pet at risk. Microchipping is a safe, effective way to help ensure your pet’s return if the unthinkable happens.
