Microchipping a Dog
Microchipping your animal is another means of permanent identification. It is a small chip the size of a grain of rice that is placed just beneath your animal’s skin. If your animal ever goes missing and they do not have a collar on, they can always be scanned if found and brought into an animal shelter or animal hospital.
Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?
Microchipping is a very common form of identification. A lot of pets go missing that aren’t wearing any identification. It is a great idea to have this done because it is a sure way to identify your pet and get them home to you. When animals are brought into a veterinary clinic or picked up by animal control, this is the first thing that is checked.
How does microchipping work and is it safe for my dog?
Implanting a microchip is quite quick and very safe. It is implanted with a larger needle under the skin between the shoulder blades.
