Pets are naturally curious creatures and usually wander around their environments. This is why we encourage fur parents to get them microchipped.

What are microchips? How are microchips implanted in pets?

Microchips have the pet owner’s information and details about the pets on them. If that pet is found, then they can be brought to an animal hospital or shelter where the chip can be scanned and read.

The practice of microchipping is done by inserting a chip underneath your pet’s skin with a needle. This chip has a barcode on it that can be detected by a scanner. The chip is usually inserted between the shoulder blades.

How do I connect my information to the microchip?

After the microchip is implanted you will be given the permanent ID number and the microchip company it is associated with. You then contact the microchip company to register your pet with your information. It is important to keep your contact information updated so it will be easier to return your lost pet.


Is microchipping painful for pets?


Microchipping feels similar to getting a shot or vaccine therefore, it is relatively painless. It takes seconds to be completed.
