microchip is about the size and shape of a grain of rice and is placed
underneath your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. Microchip
implantation takes only a few minutes and is very safe. Each microchip
is unique and carries vital information about your pet—including your
name, address, and contact information. When a microchip is implanted,
the pet owner is given a registration form to complete. Registering the
number on the microchip includes your pet in a national pet recovery
database. Veterinary hospitals, animal shelters, and animal control
offices across the country are equipped with special electronic scanners
that can detect the microchip and read the identification number. If a
lost pet is picked up by animal control or found by a good Samaritan and
presented to a veterinarian, a quick scan of the microchip reveals the
identification number. A toll-free phone call to the pet recovery
database alerts the microchip company that a lost pet has been
identified. The pet owner can then be contacted and reunited with his or
Young puppies and kittens can receive microchips, but even if your pet is already an adult, you should consider microchipping. Even indoor pets can get outside accidentally and get lost, so if you’re relying on other forms of identification, you could be placing your pet at risk. Microchipping is a safe, effective way to help ensure your pet’s return if the unthinkable happens.
