Losing a pet can be one of the greatest moments of panic we may face. They cannot simply tell whomever finds them where they belong. Fortunately, a microchip can do that for them!
Microchipping your pet is a quick and simple procedure that makes for a safe and permanent way to identify them in case of the following scenarios:
A microchip is very small (as pictured) and is inserted just under the skin between the shoulder blades. It can be done during a routine visit, but some prefer to have it done while their pet is sedated for other procedures such as a spay/neuter or dental. With a microchip, your pet is given its own unique ID code that will show when scanned at any veterinary clinic or animal shelter. Once scanned, the code is entered into a database that will allow your information to be retrieved to reunite you with your pet.
The cost for microchipping is $55 which includes the chip itself, the insertion, and registration.
