The Benefit of Microchipping

In recent years, microchipping has grown in popularity among dog and cat owners. Microchipping greatly increases the chances of pet owners getting their lost dogs or cats back if they run away from home. With a microchip, vet specialists or animal shelter members can scan the lost pet for a chip number and pull up the contact information of the owner from their electronic device. This makes it easy for whoever has found the pet to get it back to its rightful owner. Microchipping is so helpful for recovering lost pets that many animal shelters now microchip all of their animals.

The Microchipping Process

Microchipping is a quick and uncomplicated procedure that a veterinarian or veterinary technician can perform. The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and is implanted under your pet's skin through an injection. It will not cause your pet any more discomfort than a small pinch. Almost every veterinary clinic, including ours, is equipped to implant the microchips and to scan them. The microchip will have an alphanumeric that is linked to your contact information in a national database. All of this can be taken care of in one appointment.
