Microchipping a Dog

Microchipping your dog is becoming a pretty standard practice across North America and is one of the best sources of identification for your dog. Microchipping your dog involves inserting a small microchip under the skin. The microchip itself is about the size of a grain of rice.

Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?


Even the most vigilant of owners can have their back turned for a minute, and that’s all it can take for your pet to make a run for it. Many furry friends have found their way back home thanks to their microchip.

How does a microchip work and is it safe?


Most veterinary clinics and shelters have microchip scanners. If a lost pet is brought to us, the first step is to scan the pet for a microchip. The microchip number can then be searched through an online service that will advise us how to contact you, the owner, and get your furry friend back home.

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
