Microchipping for Pets

A microchip is a form of permanent identification. It is the size of a grain of rice. It is inserted with a needle into the “scruff” right between the shoulder blades.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my pet?

If your pet is ever lost and found, all shelters and vet clinics have a scanner to read the microchip, which is a code unique to your pet. We can track that code through our database or we can call the microchip company who contact you on our behalf to let you know where your pet is. Microchips do not act as a GPS. Microchipping is something that can be done in the course of an exam, or can be done when your pet is in for their spay or neuter.
