Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. A veterinarian simply injects the microchip – which is about the size of a grain of rice – beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine injection and takes only a few seconds. No anesthetic is required. Your pet may feel a slight pinch, but the process is relatively painless.
Once the microchip has been injected, it will last for your pet’s entire life. There is no internal energy source, so you will never have to recharge the chip, replace batteries, or remove the chip. Should your pet ever wander off or become lost, a shelter, veterinarian, or other pet rescue organization can identify your pet and find your contact information by scanning their microchip.
