MICROCHIPPING & SCANNING

A missing dog or cat can be a terrifying feeling for pet owners and your pet. The best chance for owners to find his or her missing pet is to have a microchip implanted in your pet by a veterinarian. Using implant technology and a national database with the pet owner information, is safe and easy to use which brings peace of mind to the owner of the pet.

 

The microchip’s sole function is to store a unique ID number that is used to retrieve a pet parent’s contact information.

 

When a microchip scanner is passed over the skin of a microchipped pet, the implanted microchip emits an radio frequency signal. The scanner reads the microchip’s unique ID code. The microchip registry is called, and the registry company uses the ID number to retrieve the pet parent’s contact information from the pet recovery database.

 

Most animal shelters and veterinary hospitals have global scanners that read pet microchips from most manufacturers.

 

Microchipping is not a painful to the pet. The procedure literally takes just a few seconds, and can be done even on small pets while they are fully awake.
