How Microchipping Works
Pet microchipping has been around for a few years now. It has become so popular that many animal shelters will automatically microchip any pet that goes through their operation. Chances are that if you have a rescue dog or cat, they have been microchipped already. We can check whether or not your pet has a microchip. If they don't and you decide you want us to implant a microchip, you'll be happy to know that the process is quick and nearly painless.
Microchips can be implanted by a veterinarian with a quick injection. The microchip goes just under your pet's skin, usually between the shoulder blades. There may be a small amount of redness and bleeding, but it shouldn't be very much.
If your pet ever gets lost, they can be identified when found using the microchip. Animal shelters and veterinarians have a device that can read the microchip. Each microchip has a unique alphanumeric designation. This designation is linked to a database with the owner's contact information. This allows pets to be returned to their owners more frequently if they are found by someone else. Many pets have been successfully returned to their owners using this pet identification technology.
