Dog Microchipping

Microchipping a Dog

Microchipping is a safe, easy and permanent form of identification for your dog.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?


Microchipping is important for identification and tracking purposes when your dog is missing and found elsewhere. Even though we never plan for our dog to be out on its own, mishaps happen, and the best way to reunite a lost dog with his or her family is with a microchip.

How does microchipping work and is it safe for my dog?


The microchip is implanted underneath the skin, usually between the shoulders. Microchipping is very safe. Modern chips are smaller than previous models, migrate less and are an international standard, so it is readable in any country.

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?


Microchipping is very inexpensive, and a small cost compared to the peace of mind knowing your dog will never be without his or her identification. Please contact our veterinary clinic for current pricing.
