The microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, is injected just beneath the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. Once the microchip is in place, it can be easily read by a scanner at any veterinary clinic or animal shelter. The information on the microchip is linked to a database that contains your contact information, so if your pet is found, you can be contacted immediately.
Microchipping is especially important for outdoor pets, but it’s also suitable for indoor pets. Accidents can happen even if your pet never goes outside, and a microchip can help ensure that your pet is returned to you if it escapes.
