Pet Microchipping

Understanding Pet Microchipping

Pet microchipping involves the implantation of a small, rice-sized microchip beneath your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a unique identification number that can be scanned by a special handheld device. This number is linked to your contact information in a national pet recovery database, allowing shelters, veterinarians, and animal control agencies to reunite you with your pet if they are found.

Benefits of Pet Microchipping

  • Permanent Identification: Unlike collars and tags, which can become lost or damaged, a microchip provides permanent identification for your pet.
  • Increased Chance of Return: Microchipped pets are more likely to be reunited with their owners if they become lost or stolen, as their identification is stored securely within the microchip.
  • Quick and Painless Procedure: The microchipping procedure is quick, simple, and virtually painless for your pet, similar to receiving a routine vaccination.
  • Nationwide Coverage: Microchips can be scanned by any veterinary clinic, shelter, or animal control agency equipped with a microchip scanner, providing nationwide coverage for lost pets.

When to Consider Pet Microchipping

Pet microchipping is recommended for all pets, regardless of breed, age, or lifestyle. However, it is essential for:

  • Outdoor pets: Pets that spend time outdoors or have access to the outdoors are at a higher risk of becoming lost or wandering away from home.
  • Traveling pets: If you frequently travel with your pet or plan to move to a new area, microchipping provides added security in case of accidental escape or loss.
  • Newly adopted pets: Microchipping is often included in the adoption process for shelter pets, ensuring they have a permanent form of identification.
