Microchipping is a super simple, and relatively inexpensive procedure that can save a lot of headaches and heartbreak in the event that one of your pets gets loose and runs away while you’re out on the road.

A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, and are injected beneath the surface of your pet’s skin with a needle – right between their shoulder blades. It takes only a few seconds, and prompts a reaction from your pet similar to that of a simple vaccination.

This form of ID is permanent, and will last for your pet’s entire life, and the identification process is very simple. In the even that your pet ends up and a humane society, pound, vet clinic, or an animal control office – authorities will simply wave a scanner over your pet’s shoulders, emitting a frequency that will read your pet’s ID number.

Pets have been known to be found thousands of miles away from home – thanks to the effectiveness of microchipping!
