Why Puppy Micro-chipping?
Puppy microchipping is essential because millions of dogs get lost every year. Sometimes while out on a walk, your dog may hear a loud noise like the back-firing of a car and wiggle out of their collar, some may slip out of an open door or even find an opening under the fence and run away. No matter what the reason, microchipping helps reunite a lost dog with it’s owner.
Puppy microchipping consists of a tiny computer chip, about the size of a grain of rice, that is already pre-loaded in a sterile hypodermic needle. Each puppy microchip has a unique number and it is implanted under your dogs skin, between his or her shoulder blades. The process only takes a few seconds and is similar to a vaccination. The microchip has a unique number that can be picked up by a scanner and will last your dogs lifetime.
If your dog gets lost and is taken to a Veterinary Clinic or a Shelter your dog will be scanned for a puppy microchip. That will show which database he or she is registered with. They will call the toll-free number and the database will match your dogs micro-chip number with your info.
