Microchipping can help a lost pet return home

A microchip is a small device about the size of a grain of rice that is implanted between your pet's shoulder blades. The microchip contains a unique identifier code which is linked to your information in a national database. In the event that your pet is separated from you, the microchip can be read by any veterinarian or animal shelter. Inputting the ID code into the owner database allows them to contact you so that you and your pet can be reunited.

In this video, Dr. Patterson and Marcy demonstrate how a microchip is implanted and read. This simple, inexpensive and painless procedure is critical for any pet, especially as we approach Independence Day fireworks celebrations.
