Microchip your Pet!
Pets with microchips are up to 20 times more likely to be reunited with their owners. It’s a simple procedure, it’s not expensive, and the risks are minimal.
A microchip is a radio-frequency identification transponder that carries a unique identification number, and is roughly the size of a grain of rice. When the microchip is scanned by a vet or shelter, it transmits the ID number. There’s no battery, no power required, and no moving parts. The microchip is injected under the loose skin between your dog’s shoulder blades and can be done in your vet’s office. It’s no more invasive than a vaccination.
Collars, harnesses, and tags can break off or be removed. Even if tags stay on, over time they can become hard to read. A microchip will permanently identify your pet when it gets lost or if it is ever stolen. That said, all pets should continue to wear a collar and tags that include their owner’s contact info. While they can’t guide you to your dog’s location, they provide a way for you to be contacted, by almost any veterinarian or shelter, if your pup is brought in.
