We Microchip!

Microchipping:

 

If you want the best chance to never lose your precious animals, you should consider microchipping. Our Humane Society provides microchipping for $35.00, a small price to pay to make sure your pet has the best chance of coming back home to you. If you are still a little weary here is more information about microchipping to ease your mind.

 

What exactly is a microchip?

 

A microchip is a very small, electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder that is about the same size as a grain of rice. It does not have a battery, but it is activated by a scanner that is passed over the area and the radio waves put out by the scanner activate the chip.

 

Is inserting the chip into your animal painful?

 

It is injected under the skin using a hypodermic needle. It is no more painful than a typical injection, although the needle is slightly larger than those used for injection. No surgery or anesthesia is required—a microchip can be implanted during a routine veterinary office visit or you can have this done by our humane society for $35.00!

 

If you need a little more information to ease your mind there will be a link attached below where we received this information to help you make your decision!
