Microchipping a Dog
Microchipping is a permanent form of identification that can be used to identify your dog in case they become lost.
Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?
Microchipping is a great way to insure that your dog can be identified. Collars and tags can fall off, which makes it impossible to determine who they belong to. Microchipping will allow veterinary clinics, shelters, and animal control officers to quickly identify your dog and access your contact information.
How does a microchip work and is it safe?
Microchipping is safe and does not have any harmful side effects. The microchip houses a number that is individual to your dog. Using a scanner, the number can be accessed and looked up in the microchip database. It is important to have current contact information, so your dog can be returned home quickly.
How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
