What Is a Pet Microchip?
How Do Pet Microchips Work?
What to Expect During Your Pet's Microchip Appointment
Microchips are placed between a cat’s or dog’s shoulders, and they are inserted using a specially designed hypodermic needle. The microchipping process is actually quite simple. There’s no need for surgical incisions or anesthesia, and pets only experience a small pinching sensation like they would when receiving a vaccination.
