Microchip May Facts

A microchip is your pet’s permanent identification that lasts a lifetime.

A microchip is the size of a grain of rice.

Micro-chipping does not hurt your pet. When the microchip is implanted, your pet will feel a slight pinch. No more than the same pinch they feel when getting a shot. 

Your pet has a higher chance of returning home with a microchip. Pets can lose collars with identification tags but can never lose a microchip.
