Are Microchips Safe for My Dog?
Absolutely! Identification microchips are safe for your dog. Getting your pet microchipped is easy. When you visit your veterinarian to get a microchip, the DVM will place a microchip is between your dog’s or cat’s shoulder blades. Implantation is quick, easy and virtually painless – similar to a vaccine injection – and can be performed during a regular clinic visit.
Microchips are also inexpensive. Most veterinarians charge around $50, a small price to pay for the security of knowing that you and your lost pet may be reunited with you with one scan.
