Microchipping Service for Dogs

Microchipping a Dog

A microchip is a rice grain sized device that is inserted under the skin in dogs and cats. It is used for precise identification of an animal. Some countries require a microchip if you are travelling there. For travel, it is important to have the microchip in place before getting the Rabies vaccine booster. This is needed to prove that the correct animal was vaccinated before travel.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?

Microchipping is an excellent way to identify your dog should it go missing. The microchip is always put in the same spot between the shoulder blades so that all veterinary clinics and humane societies, etc. will look for the microchip in the same place. The registry is North America wide so as long as you have registered your dog’s microchip and kept your address up to date, the facility that finds your dog should be able to trace it to you.
