Each year, thousands of pets go missing and don’t make it home. A microchip is a safe and effective form of identification that can significantly increase the chance your pet will return home safely. A microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades. This only takes a couple of minutes and is very safe. Each microchip is unique and carries vital information about your pet. After the implantation, the owner is given a registration form to complete and once complete, the pet will go into a national pet recovery database. If your pet gets lost, most veterinary clinics, shelters, and animal control will scan found pets to see if they are microchipped. We have an universal scanner that reads all chips.
