Dog Microchipping Perfect for Show Dog and Mutts

Create a permanent bond between yourself and your canine through dog microchipping. Many show dog breeders and trainers have their animals chipped in order to protect both the dog and their investment.

However, dog microchipping is becoming more popular with regular dogs and their owners. If you love your dog and want to do everything possible to keep him or her happy at home with you, consider dog microchipping.

Cat Microchipping for Pets Big and Small

Like dog microchipping, cat microchipping is becoming more and more popular among breeders, trainers, and regular owners. The microchip itself is about the size of a grain of rice, so it can be safely implanted in cats of any species or size. With the chip in place, your cat's chances of returning home after getting lost are much higher. Since cats are more likely to slip their collars-or not wear a collar at all- it is especially important for them to have the identification that cat microchipping provides.


How Microchipping Works

Pet microchipping is one of the most important measures you can take to protect your dog or cat. After one quick implantation procedure, your pet gains a permanent form of identification that cannot be removed or lost like a collar and tags. The implantable procedure is no more painful than any routine vaccination and highly affordable. Once implanted, the microchip is in place permanently. It is made from biocompatible materials that do not dissolve or decompose. Furthermore, the chip should never need to be replaced or recharged. Pet microchipping utilizes radio-frequency identification technology, which does not require a power source to function.

When your dog or cat is taken to an animal shelter, the staff there will scan him or her for pet microchipping. The chip receives sufficient power from the scanner to transmit its identification number. With this number, the shelter can then look up the appropriate contact information to tell you your pet's location. By keeping your contact information up-to-date with the registry, you ensure the shelter always know exactly who to call.
