The Importance of Microchipping Your Pet


1 in 3 pets will end up lost. Without ID, 90% won't come home.

What is a Microchip?

Microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and are implanted with a quick injection between the shoulder blades. A small handheld scanner can detect the microchip number and, with one quick phone call to the microchip company, a shelter or veterinary clinic can be put directly in contact with you. Microchips help get your pet home faster!


Why Use a Microchip?

Where collars and ID tags can break or slip off, a microchip is permanent, inexpensive, and can be purchased at just about any veterinary office. And they aren’t just for dogs and cats!


Update, Update, Update!

Be sure to keep the address and phone number on file updated with the microchip company! Many pet owners don’t realize that they must call the microchip company to provide their contact information or to update their address if they move!
