Every year thousands of pets get lost and are separated from their families. Microchipping your pet is the best way to make certain your lost pet can be reunited with you as quickly as possible. Inserted just under the skin, the microchip is implanted into your pet with a special device similar to a vaccination syringe. Once inserted, the microchip will provide a lifetime of protection. Lost pets can be scanned with a special scanner and the microchip will provide a unique number that identifies your pet. With that number, the microchip database will provide the information needed to contact you.
