Dog Microchip

Microchipping a Dog

A pet dog very quickly becomes an integral part of your family so it is important to provide them with every opportunity to be returned to you should they ever get lost. A microchip is a small computer chip, roughly the size of a single grain of rice, that is placed under your dog’s skin. This chip contains a unique number that becomes linked to your dog’s information as well as your information. Special scanners are used to check a dog for a microchip – these scanners are often in veterinary clinics, pet stores as well as shelters.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?


Dog collars and identification tags can easily be removed if your dog has wandered away from home. A microchip is a permanent method of identification that will help get your pet home safe as quickly as possible.

How does microchipping work and is it safe for my dog?


The microchip is placed under your dog’s skin with a needle similar to the way we administer vaccines. It is 100% safe for your dog.
