Microchipping
 

Microchips are a permanent way of identifying your pet. A very tiny computerized microchip is placed below the skin in a standardized area based on the type of animal. There is no working or moving part, so the chip can't stop working. The chip is encased in biocompatible material so there is no tissue rejection or reaction. The animals are also identified with a tag alerting to the fact that they have a microchip implant. If a pet gets lost, animal shelters, humane societies, and veterinarians have scanners that read the number on the chip. Lost animals are routinely scanned for a microchip.

We use the new microfindrTM slim microchip which conforms to ISO Standard 11784. When the microfindrTM slim microchip is implanted, the owner is given the pet's unique microfindrTM ID number to register their pet on PetLink.net, an international pet database. PetLink provides free lifetime registration, free lifetime updates, and free 24/7 support for pets and their owners.
