What are microchips?

  • They are tiny computer chips, about the size of a grain of rice.
  • They are implanted just under an animal’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to getting a vaccination.
  • They hold information such as the owner’s name and phone number, similar to a dog tag, but much more reliable!

Why should YOU microchip your pet?

  • 1 in 3 pets will become lost in their lifetime.
  • Microchipped pets have a higher rate of return to their families when lost.
  • Microchips help protect against animal theft.
