WHAT IS A MICROCHIP? A microchip is a permanent method of electronic identification. It is NOT a GPS tracker. The chip itself is very small - about the size of a grain of rice; therefore, surgery and anesthesia is not necessary. It takes as long as, and feels like, a vaccine shot.
HOW IS IT INSERTED? It is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet's neck. Each chip has a unique number that is detected using a microchip scanner.
HOW DOES IT GET YOUR DOG HOME? If your dog has a microchip and is found after getting lost, the unique ID number can be entered into this system (https://petchip.info/) to start the process of getting them back home to you. **It is important to know where your dog's microchip is registered and keep your information up to date** Don't know? Ask a veterinarian's office to help you.
