Q: What is a microchip?
A: Microchips are a type of permanent pet identification that is injected under the skin of your pet in-between the shoulder blades.
Q: How big is it?
A: They are the size of a grain of rice. They house a tiny computer chip with an identification number that can be detected when scanned by a shelter or vet.
Q: Does it hurt my pet?
A: No! Microchipping is a quick procedure and no anesthesia is required. Oftentimes, your pet does not even realize it has been placed.
Q: How long does it last?
A: Microchips are permanent and do not require replacing. They will last for the entire life of your pet!
Q: But my pet is already microchipped!
A: Awesome! Be sure to make sure that the chip information is registered correctly. If you have had a phone number, address, or email change since the microchip has been inserted, make sure to update them on the microchip database!
