The only permanent and reliable way to identify a lost pet.

Microchipping is a permanent pet identification system that is safe, simple, and effective. It is designed to quickly identify lost pets and reunite them with their owners. Microchips are a proven way to successfully recover your pet if they should become lost.

What is microchipping, and how does it work?

Microchipping is a procedure in which an electronic chip, about the size of a rice grain, is implanted under the skin. This chip emits a unique signal that can be read by a chip reader. Thus, microchipping works by providing permanent identification for the pet, facilitating recovery in case of loss or theft.

Is microchipping painful for my cat or dog?

Microchipping is generally not painful for your pet. The procedure is quick and similar to a vaccination. It often does not require anesthesia, and the chip is implanted under the skin painlessly. The benefits in terms of safety and recovery in case of loss far outweigh the momentary discomfort of the procedure.

How can I update the information associated with my pet's chip?

You can easily update the information associated with your pet’s chip by contacting the microchipping database where the identification is registered. Most databases allow pet owners to update their contact information, including phone number, address, and other relevant details. It is essential to keep this information up-to-date to ensure efficient recovery in case of loss or emergency situations.
