How do microchips work?

A microchip is a tiny, rice-sized device that contains a unique identification code. It is inserted just beneath your pet's skin, usually between their shoulder blades, in a quick and painless procedure. The unique identification code acts as your pet's personal ID, making it easy for anyone with a microchip scanner to identify and contact you if your pet ever gets lost. Think of it as their secret tracker, helping you reunite with your pet faster than ever before!

Will my pet feel the microchip once it's inserted?

No. Your pet won't even notice the microchip once it's inserted. It's as small as a grain of rice and designed to stay in place just beneath their skin. Your furry companion will continue their adventures and daily activities without any discomfort or disruption. The peace of mind you'll gain from knowing your pet has a reliable identification system far outweighs any minimal discomfort they might experience during the brief insertion process.

Do you recommend my cat or dog get microchipped?

Absolutely, we highly recommend microchipping your cat or dog. While your cat or dog may already wear a collar and ID tag, it's important to remember that these items are not permanent and can be removed or lost by your pet. Microchipping provides a reliable and permanent form of identification for your pet, ensuring they can be easily reunited with you if they ever get lost. It's a simple and safe procedure that offers peace of mind, knowing that your cat or dog has an added layer of security.
