About Pet Microchipping

What is Animal Microchipping?

A microchip is a very small, safe, and unobtrusive piece of radio-frequency technology that provides identification your pet, should it become lost or stolen. The microchip is roughly the size of a grain of rice.

The microchip serves as a safe, secure, reliable, and permanent form of identification for your pet. Unlike an ID tag or collar, which can fall off or become hard to read, the microchip is permanently placed under your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip placement is no more invasive than a common vaccination.
