Microchipping

Microchipping Your Pet

No one wants to suffer the heartache of one's cherished pet getting lost. Fortunately, a simple procedure can help protect your pet. About the size of a grain of rice, a microchip implant can identify your beloved pet if he or she ever becomes lost. An important addition to collar tags, a microchip can provide a permanent identification method for your pet.

Microchips use Radio Frequency identification (RFID) technology to store data and can communicate that information to a device equipped to read it. The capsule containing the microchip is biocompatible, meaning that it does not hurt your pet. A microchip lasts for the entire lifetime of your pet. Most animal shelters and veterinary hospitals are equipped with microchip scanners that are used anytime an animal is presented without a known owner or other identification.
