Microchipping Your Dog


Your rating: None

A collar tag with current information is an important first step in keeping your dog safe, but they are not foolproof. Dogs can slip out of collars, and collars can be removed. That's why microchipping is a smart idea. Pet microchips are small identification devices that look like a grain of rice. They are implanted safely beneath pets' skin, similar to a vaccination. Microchips give pets a permanent, unique identity that makes them instantly recognizable when read with special, hand-held scanners. This increases the chances lost pets will be returned to their owners.
