Life would be easier if pets could talk. A microchip gives pets a silent voice when they can’t speak for themselves.
Microchipping is the only unique, unalterable, tamper-proof, permanent form of identification that owners can provide for pets. Once microchipped, owners are encouraged to register their pets so that their contact information is on record in the event that their pet is ever lost or stolen. A microchip that is registered gives your pet a silent voice, and gives owners peace of mind that your beloved pet will find its way home.
A microchip is as small as a grain of rice, and is easily implanted under the skin of your pet between its shoulder blades. It can’t be removed or fall off. Giving a pet an electronic ID is like giving them their own passport.
Today, microchipping and registration is considered the most reliable and efficient means of pet identification and reunification. Cities, states and provinces, even national governments and animal health organizations around the world have introduced legislation to make the electronic identification of companion animals mandatory in an effort to eradicate the problem of unidentified, unclaimed and unwanted pets.
