While taking our furry friends on a new hiking trail may feel like a great adventure for us, sometimes all our pets can think about is “Where to next?” Microchipping your pet takes the fear out of this question. As a permanent form of ID, should your furry companion go missing, we can return them to where they belong: in the warmth of your loving hands and home. To get your pet microchipped, call us at 905-579-4040.
Can I track my pet?
While it would be great to know your pet’s whereabouts at all times, microchips are not GPS trackers. This means pet owners cannot track their pet’s location in real-time. A pet microchip is a small device about the size of a grain of rice. It is a form of identification that, when scanned, contains your pet’s medical history and your most recent contact information. It’s essential to update your contact information should it change, so you can easily be contacted.
How is the microchip implanted in my pet?
The microchip is inserted under your pet’s skin using a small needle. It is usually placed between the shoulder blades and is barely visible. Your pet may feel a slight pinch from the needle, but the procedure is relatively painless and safe for all pets. Our team will ensure your furry loved one is calm and comfortable throughout the process. After implanting and scanning the microchip to test if it’s working correctly, you and your pet are free to make countless more memories together.
