Microchip identification is a permanent name tag for your pet.
If your pet becomes lost and is found by another veterinarian or animal shelter, the microchip can be scanned and your pet can be returned safely to you.
The microchip is a tiny computer chip placed under the skin between your pet's shoulders by a veterinarian. The number on the microchip is stored in an international database and identifies only your pet.
A microchip cannot be lost or damaged and lasts a lifetime.
It is up to the pet owner to update any changes in contact information.
