Microchips

Did you know that 1 in 3 pets will become lost in their lifetime? If your pet is lost, a microchip could mean the difference between a happy reunion and a devastating loss.

A microchip is a device the size of a grain of rice, implanted in your pet, usually between the shoulder blades. The microchip contains a 9–15 digit number that can be read by a special scanner.
