What is Pet Microchipping?

A microchip is a small electronic chip about the size of a grain of rice. It is implanted just under your pet’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a unique identification number that can be read by a special scanner. This number is linked to your contact information in a national pet recovery database, so if your pet ever goes missing, veterinarians, animal shelters, and animal control officers can scan them and contact you.

Microchipping can also be beneficial if you’re planning to travel with your pet, as some airlines and countries require pets to be microchipped for identification purposes.

Benefits of Pet Microchipping

  • Permanent Identification: Unlike collars and tags, which can fall off or be removed, a microchip provides permanent identification for your pet.
  • Quick and Painless: The microchipping procedure is quick, safe, and virtually painless for your pet. It can be done during a regular veterinary visit and does not require anesthesia.
  • Increased Chance of Return: Studies have shown that microchipped pets are more likely to be reunited with their owners if they are lost or stolen.
  • Peace of Mind: Knowing that your pet has a permanent form of identification can give you peace of mind, especially if your pet is prone to wandering or escaping.
