It is important that your dog or cat has identification at all times. Collars and tags are essential, but they can fall off or become damaged. A microchip is the permanent solution.
More Information... It is about the size of a grain of rice and consists of a tiny computer. The microchip is implanted between the animal's shoulder blades under the skin with a needle and special syringe. Your pet will experience little to no pain. Once in place, the microchip can be detected immediately with a handheld device that uses radio waves to read the chip. Microchipping has several advantages:
Microchips are designed to last for the life of your pet. They do not need to be charged or replaced.
Microchipping can increase the odds of finding your beloved companion if lost as any animal can be easily identified if found by a shelter or veterinary office in possession of a scanner and traced back to its owner.
Microchipping is also required for international travel.
