A microchip is a small capsule with a bar code inside. It is injected under your pet’s skin, much like a vaccine is. The unique code number is registered to you. If your pet is lost and brought to a veterinary office or a shelter, a hand-held scanner is used to read the bar code, the code is entered into a website, and your information appears. You can then be contacted to pick up your beloved pet!
We have seen families reunited numerous times, thanks to these microchips. Most of us, pets included, are outdoors more in the nice weather, and it is easier for a pet to escape our care. Isn’t it time to microchip your pet today?
