We offer microchipping as a form of permanent pet identification. This is a safe and simple way to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their families. The microchip is a tiny device that is inserted just under the pet’s skin in the shoulder region. This procedure involves minimal pain and is done just like a vaccination. The identification number of the microchip is registered to the pet owner and can be read by a scanner that most shelters and veterinary facilities have on hand. This is one of the few forms of identification that provides proof of ownership.
