What is a Microchip?
A microchip is an identifying integrated circuit placed under the skin of a dog, cat, horse or other animals. The chips are about the size of a large grain of rice and are based on a positive RFID (Radio Frequency Identification) technology.
Why implant a microchip?
When your pet is lost and found or stolen and found, your pet's enrollment form, will prove that you are the owner of the found pet. Many countries require microchip when traveling with your pet and to prove that the animal vaccination records match.

Procedure to effective pet identification
Welcome to HCAW with your pet, to provide all requirements needed for micro chipping. The vet does a pre-scan to verify that the animal initially does not have a chip, and then insert the chip into the animal with a syringe. The injection requires no anesthetic.
Don't worry; pets are not affected physically or behaviorally by the presence of a chip in their bodies. An enrollment form is completed with the chip number, the pet owner's contact information, the name and description of the pet.
The original copy will be handed to the owner.
Information will be entered into the data base.
The pet owner will be provided with a free collar tag imprinted with the HCAW's phone number and the owner's phone number
