Why Microchip?

Microchips for dogs and cats mean your family pet gets home safe and sound. For the price of a quick and inexpensive procedure, and the few minutes it takes to use your phone, tablet, or computer to register you name and address with the microchip website, you can rest knowing your best friend can be identified and returned to you. The process of getting the microchip for dogs and cats is simple.

This is not a surgery and healing takes no time at all. Microchips are injected just like dog and cat vaccinations or other pet shots. If you opt for a microchip for a puppy or kitten during a spay or neuter visit, it will be done before they wake up.

Even if not done during surgery, remember, the microchip itself is about the size of a grain of rice. While there might be the momentary sting like getting a shot, with a few pats, comforting words, and a nice treat, your companion will have forgotten about the shot before you leave the clinic. There’s no discomfort or pain caused by the microchip after injection and microchips are non-toxic so your animal will not have an allergic reaction.

While microchipping your pet is not perfectly painless, it’s certainly worth saving the pain of losing your best friend if they were to get out.
