What Is A Microchip?
A microchip is a very small computer
implanted electronically. This number is
your pet’s unique ID; it corresponds to the
chip manufacturer’s database, where your
contact information is stored.
The microchip itself is placed in a small
glass capsule and inserted under your pet’s
skin. When a lost pet is returned to an animal
there can read the chip’s number. In this
fashion, a lost pet can quickly and easily be
returned to the rightful owner.

tags—your pet can’t remove it, which means
you have peace of mind knowing that even
if an escape occurs, your pet remains

microchip is that you don’t have to buy a

The microchipping procedure is quick
and painless. The capsule is inserted under
specialized syringe. All your pet feels is a
momentary pinching sensation before the
whole thing is over; it only takes a few short
moments! Ask your veterinarian for more
details on the microchipping procedure.
