What is Pet ID Microchipping?

Pet ID microchipping involves the implantation of a small, electronic chip beneath your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. Each microchip contains a unique identification number that can be scanned by a compatible reader. This number is registered with a national pet recovery database, allowing shelters, veterinary clinics, and animal control agencies to access your pet’s information and reunite you with your lost pet.

How Pet ID Microchipping Works

During the microchipping procedure, a veterinarian or trained veterinary technician will use a sterile needle to implant the microchip beneath your pet’s skin. The process is similar to a routine vaccination and typically takes only a few seconds to complete. Once implanted, the microchip remains in place for the rest of your pet’s life, providing reliable identification for years to come.

Benefits of Pet ID Microchipping

Permanent Identification

Unlike collars and tags that can become lost or damaged, a microchip provides permanent identification for your pet.

Increased Chance of Return

In the event that your pet becomes lost or separated from you, a microchip significantly increases the likelihood of being reunited, as it cannot be removed or altered.

Quick and Painless Procedure

Microchipping is a quick and virtually painless procedure that can be performed during a routine veterinary visit.

Global Recognition

Microchips are recognized internationally, making them an effective form of identification whether you’re traveling with your pet or they become lost far from home.
