Microchipping Your Pet
Microchipping is a quick and easy way to ensure that you will be reunited with your pet if you become separated. The chip itself is no larger than a grain of rice, and is injected under the skin, typically near the shoulders. This procedure can be done at a routine visit, or while your pet is being spayed or neutered. If your pet is found and taken to an animal shelter or veterinary clinic, a hand-held scanner is waved over your pet's body to activate the chip, giving the specific identification number that connects your information to your furry friend. The shelter or clinic will then contact the company that your microchip is registered with, who will then contact you, and you'll have your best friend back before you know it!
