Microchipping a Dog
Microchipping is a form of identification for your pet. A small ID chip the size of a grain of rice is inserted under the skin. This unique identification number is then linked to the owner’s contact information. In the event that your pet is lost, brought to a shelter or to a veterinary clinic by another person, the microchip can be scanned. Then, the company will be contacted to retrieve the owner’s information. Keeping your contact information up to date is vital for a quick reunion.
