Microchipping a Dog

Microchips are a type of permanent identification that cannot be altered. Veterinary clinics, animal control officers and animal shelters have microchip scanners, when a stray or found dog/cat is brought in they get scanned for a microchip. The number is registered to the owner allowing them to be contacted. Microchips are also very helpful in recovery of stolen dogs.

Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?

Although never planned, any dog can run away for a variety of circumstances. Microchips increase the change of owners being reunited with their pets.

How does a microchip work and is it safe?

A microchip holds a coded number that can be scanned by universal microchip readers. The number is registered to a specific company, when the company is called the number is linked to the owner’s information. Microchips are implanted in the ‘scruff’ of the neck (under the skin between the shoulders), it is very safe to implant.

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?

Microchipping costs can vary, depending on companies and brands used. Feel free to give us a call for a quote.
