Microchip Pet Identification

Microchip Pet Identification in EtobicokeMicrochipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost or stolen. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a grain of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine.

Read the AAHA (American Animal Hospital Association) Animal Identification Position Statement.

If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, the humane society will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store.

We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet. We have many wonderful stories of pets reunited with their owners thanks to having a microchip. It is with heartfelt encouragement that we recommend a microchip for your pet today!
