Microchipping a Dog

Hundreds of dogs go missing every year and may not be found by their owners. One of the ways to increase the chances of finding your lost pet is having it microchipped.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?

You should microchip your dog. It’s a simple, inexpensive, and mostly painless procedure. If your dog is lost, the chip will significantly increase your chances of finding her/him. The microchip is beneficial because it can be scanned internationally whereas the tattoo is only able to be searched provincially.

How does microchipping work and is it safe for my dog?

A needle is used to place a little chip under the animal’s skin, usually between the shoulder blades. That chip has a unique number on it that can be picked up and read by a scanner.
