What is microchipping?
A microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size and shape of a grain of rice. It is implanted beneath your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades, and stays there for the pet's entire life. This procedure is as easy and as painless as a vaccination.
How does microchip identification work?
Each microchip has a unique number. This number, along with information about the owner and pet, are added to a national registry. Most veterinarians and animal shelters have electronic scanners for detecting and reading these implanted microchips. If a lost pet is found, and the microchip is scanned, the registry is called and the owner is contacted.
Please call us at 716-664-4204 to make an appointment.
Did you know that getting lost is the No. 1 cause of death for pets?
One in three pets goes missing during its lifetime and without identification, 90 percent of pets never return home. Microchip implantation causes no more discomfort than a vaccination and is a simple one-time insertion with a syringe.
Almost all humane organizations have scanners that read microchip IDs. Microchips help recover thousands of lost pets each month.
