Microchipping is a safe and professional way to identify an animal. While collars and identification tags may become lost, a microchip stays with your pet for life.


Each microchip contains a personal, one-of-a-kind identification number that associates an animal as part of a family. The personal information connected to each chip includes the animal’s guardian, veterinarian’s information, alternate contact and the animal’s personal information.

The microchip is smaller than a grain of rice and is completely harmless. Just like a vaccine, the microchip is injected under your pet’s skin (typically in the scruff of the neck) where it remains safely for life.
