    Microchip placement

    Microchips are small computer chips, approximately the size of a grain of rice, with personal identification numbers that are implanted under the skin of dogs, cats, and many other companion animals. The method of implantation is similar to giving your pet a shot. Many times microchips are placed in puppies and kittens when they are under anesthesia for a spay or neuter. Microchips can be placed in awake pets with minimal discomfort as well. Once the microchip is placed your pet will never leave home without identification and the information can be lifesaving. If your pet is lost the microchip can be scanned, and the identification number can be used to reunite the lost pet with their owner.
