Can I use the microchip to track my pet?
A pet microchip is a small device about the size of a grain of rice. While this device acts as a permanent form of ID, they are not GPS trackers. This means that pet owners cannot track their pet’s whereabouts in real-time. When scanned, the microchip can reveal your pet’s medical history and your most up-to-date contact information. This is why it’s essential to update your contact information should it change so that you can easily be contacted.
How is the microchip implanted in my pet?
The procedure is relatively painless, quick, and safe for all pets. Your furry friend may feel a pinch from the small needle we use to insert the microchip under their skin. The microchip is barely visible and is usually placed between the shoulder blades. At all stages throughout the procedure, our team will make sure your furry loved one feels calm and comfortable. Once the microchip has been implanted, we will scan it to test if it’s working correctly. From there, you and your furry companion are free to go on countless more adventures together.
