Does your pet wear a collar and tag? What would happen if those were lost? Microchipping has become a popular and safe way to provide permanent identification that cannot be lost.

A microchip is a small electronic chip about the size of a grain of rice placed under your pet’s skin. It is injected easily with a needle similar to a vaccination needle. Each microchip is identifiable by an individualized number registered in a pet tracking database service.

If your pet should become lost and picked up or taken to a shelter or rescue group, they use a hand-held scanner to read the chip, contact the registration service, and contact you to reunite you with your pet.

PLEASE ENSURE THAT YOUR REGISTRATION INFORMATION IS CURRENT WITH THE PET TRACKING DATABASE.
