What is a Microchip?

Microchipping is permanent pet identification. The process is a safe, simple and permanent form of pet identification designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners. We inject the microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine shot, takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anesthetic is required. Each microchip has a unique identification number that is encoded and locked into its integrated circuit. When the pet is registered in a pet recovery database this identification number links the pet to the owner's contact information.
