Microchipping a Dog

Microchipping your dog is the best way to ensure that you can be identified as their owner and reunited with them should they ever get lost.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?

A microchip has all the necessary information to get in touch with you if your dog goes missing. A collar tag may fall off, but a microchip will always be there. Any shelter or animal hospital will have a scanner that can check for your pet’s unique number.

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

Microchips are implanted using a needle under the skin. They will not fall out and are a safe way to ensure your information stays with your pet in case of an emergency.

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
