Microchipping is a safe and effective way to ensure your pet is safe and protected should he or she ever get lost. The idea of your pet getting lost is a scary thing and why microchipping can help find them if this should ever occur.
A microchip can help you find your dog much easier if your dog should ever get lost.
A dog can get microchipped at any age but we find the best age is between 7 to 9 weeks.
Microchipping is between $45-$80 depending on your vet. It’s a fairly simple and easy procedure. If purchasing your dog from a breeder or shelter, sometimes a microchip is included.
A microchip is a tiny computer chip that are no larger than a grain of rice. They are inserted with a special device into your pets skin. Each microchip has a unique identification tracking code. When scanned with radio signals at the vet, your pets tracking number is identified.
Microchips are safe for dogs. They are also safe to ensure that you are more likely to find your lost dog, up to 20 times more likely according to AKC reunite.
