Why should I microchip my pet?

Micro chipping is a wonderful thing you can do for your pet.

Pets that have microchips have a far greater chance of being reunited with their family when they get lost, or even stolen. According to the American Humane Association, only 22% of lost dogs overall were returned to their families, while the return-to-owner rate for micro chipped dogs was over 52%.

Microchips are approximately the size of a grain of rice and are inserted beneath an animal’s skin, between its shoulder blades. The process is painless and takes about 2 minutes. Each microchip has a unique identification number and contains contact information for the pet’s owner. A scanner is used to collect the information on the microchip once it has been inserted. Each microchip (only one per animal is necessary) costs $25, and provides a permanent means of identification for each pet.

Pets must be a minimum of 16 weeks old to receive a Rabies vaccine.

If your pet received a Rabies vaccine last year please bring that paperwork with you.

Where can I go to have the procedure done?
