Microchip 101

Microchipping a pet has several benefits. One of the main benefits is that it provides permanent and unique identification for the animal.

What is a pet microchip?

A microchip is a small chip about the size of a grain of rice that is implanted under the animal's skin, usually between the shoulder blades. It contains a unique identification number that can be read by a special scanner.

What is the main benefit of Microchipping Frenchies?

The main benefit of microchipping is that it can greatly increase the chances of reuniting lost pets with their owners. If a lost pet is found and taken to a shelter or veterinarian's office, it will likely be scanned for a microchip. If the pet has a microchip, the scanner will be able to read the identification number, which can then be used to contact the pet's owner.

Additionally, microchipping is a permanent form of identification, unlike tags or collars which can be removed or lost. It's also a one-time cost, and the information is updated in the central database.

How do I find my pet with a microchip?

It is important to note that a microchip is not a GPS. While there are GPS collars for your dog that can track their whereabouts, a microchip can only reunite a pet that has been found and scanned at a local vet.
