Microchipping is a form of identification for your pet. A small ID chip the size of a grain of rice is inserted under the skin. This unique identification number is then linked to the owner's contact information. In the event that your pet is lost or brought to a shelter or a veterinary clinic by another person, the microchip can be scanned. The microchip company will be contacted to retrieve the owner's information and reunite the pet with their loved ones. Keeping your contact information up-to-date is vital for a quick reunion.
