HOW
does

HOW DOES A MICROCHIP WORK? Microchipping is a very simple procedure. A microchip for pets, about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), is injected beneath the surface of your pets’ skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine injection and takes only a few       seconds. Your pet will not react any more than he/she would to a vaccination. Remember this is not a tracking device.

WHY
microchip?

WHY MICROCHIP?        All furkids should wear collar tags imprinted with their name and the phone number of their pawrent, but only a microchip provides permanent ID that cannot fall off, be removed, or become impossible to read.
