In today’s world, microchipping your pet has become a very simple procedure. The veterinarian injects a microchip, that is the size of a grain of rice, beneath the surface of the skin between shoulder blades, similar to a routine injection. Each microchip has a unique number along with information about the owner of pet, which is added to the pet registry.
Most veterinary hospitals and shelters are equipped with scanners for detecting and reading these microchips and it makes locating the owner simple and makes finding and identifying your lost pet a safe and secure process with little chance for a mistake. This offers each pet owner who chips his pet peace of mind to insure their pet is returned if lost.
The microchip lasts the life of your pet and is a very cost effective way to provide them with a permanent ID.
