What is a Micro-chip?
Nationally, every two seconds a family pet is lost. That represents millions of pets every year! Shelters do their very best to locate owners, but if your pet has no form of identification, there’s not much they can do. Shelters are already overcrowded so lost pets can only be kept for a short period of time. Meanwhile, owners are frantically spending time and money trying to find their beloved pet. Tragically, most never make it back home.
Developed by a veterinarian, the micro-chip is a tiny cylinder (smaller than a grain of rice) that contains a personal, one of a kind identification number that is so tiny that it fits through a hypodermic needle. It is implanted under the skin of your pet just like a vaccination and has been proven both safe and effective. After being injected into your pet, it remains there safely for life.
The pet owner then simply registers their pet’s micro-chip number and supplies the micro-chip company with important contact information so that in the event that their pet gets lost or stolen, the animal shelter or veterinarian hospital that picks up their animal can simply scan the animal with a special scanner, retrieve the identification number, punch that number into a computer and have the owner on the phone in a matter of minutes! Every puppy that we sell has already been implanted with a micro-chip!
