No one ever anticipates their pet getting lost or stolen, but it happens every day.  Microchipping your pet is an inexpensive, easy, safe, painless and permanent way to identify your pet for its entire life.  A microchip, which is about the size of a grain of rice, can be implanted under your pet’s skin through a small hollow needle.  Veterinarians, accredited animal shelters, rescues or humane societies who are registered and have a chip scanner will be able to identify your pet if they have been lost.  The scanner will read and display the number of the microchip and you will be identified as the Owner as long as your current information is registered within the microchip database.

The primary benefit of microchipping pets is the increased chance of reunification of a lost or stolen animal with their rightful owner.  Through microchipping, you can provide your pet with a lifetime ID number: an ISO standard implanted chip contains a unique and unalterable identification number – 15 digits long – and is recognized in most countries around the world.  In the US, there are two other accepted forms of valid microchips that are 9-digit and 10-digit chips respectively.

Microchipping is a one-time service that helps give you peace of mind.  The most widely used and trusted pet registry database is Petlink (Datamar). This is the brand microchip and service we use.

Even if your animal spends their whole life indoors, they should be microchipped!  These pets are the ones that typically need the most help getting home if they are accidentally lost or get out.

Here’s some information from the American Veterans Medical Association about Microchipping
