What is Microchipping?
A microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is injected under the animal’s skin between the shoulder blades. Each microchip has a unique number that is registered with a nationwide database along with the pet owner’s address and phone number. If your pet becomes lost, the microchip can be read by scanners that are used by most animal centers and veterinary clinics. Microchips reunite countless pets each year, and can make all the difference in finding your pet if they are lost, or even stolen.
