Microchipping involves implanting a tiny chip under your dog’s skin to aid in identifying them and their owner through a central database. When your dog is chipped, the chip number along with your contact information is recorded together. If a lost dog is scanned for a microchip, those with implants will be traced back to their owners. Microchipping is quick, easy and only mildly uncomfortable for a few seconds. The procedure is often done at that same time your pet undergoes spaying or neutering. When the procedure is completed under anesthesia, there is no discomfort at all for your dog.
Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?
Microchipping is a great way to ensure your dog is identifiable should they ever be separated from you. By indicating your contact information on your dog’s microchip registration form, you provide a means for veterinary hospitals and shelters to locate you and reunite you with your furry friend.
