Microchipping for dogs and cats.
A microchip is an electronic device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades and stays there for the life of the pet. Each microchip has a unique number. This number along with information about the owner and pet are added to a national pet registry. Most veterinarians and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found, and the microchip is scanned, the registry is called and the owner contacted.
