Have you ever lost a pet? It is one of the worst feelings that a pet parent may have to endure. Today however, there is a much greater chance of your pet returning home if they are microchipped or tattooed. Each microchip is about the size of a grain of rice, and they are inserted just under your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The microchip contains a unique dog or cat code which will positively identify them if they are lost and are taken to a veterinarian or animal shelter.
