Microchipping a Dog

A microchip is a small identification item that is inserted under your pet’s skin. The microchip is no bigger than a grain of rice and usually causes no discomfort or disfiguration to your pet. Microchipping is a great way of giving your pet a permanent form of identification that does not wear away, fall off, or get lost. For more information, give the clinic a call and one of our team members would be glad to help answer your questions.

Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?

Microchipping will give your dog a permanent form of identification that he/she will not be able to lose in the bush, or have worn off over time. Every veterinary clinic, rescue, and shelter automatically scan all incoming strays for a microchip. If your pet is lost or stolen, his microchip will help get him home faster.

How does a microchip work and is it safe?

Microchipping is very safe and effective! When you bring your dog in for a microchip, he will receive an injection between the shoulder blades, implanting the chip into your pet. Once the implant has been placed, our veterinary team will use our microchip scanner to confirm that the chip is properly placed and working. Each microchip is assigned a unique code, linked to that chip alone – no two codes are the same!

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?

The fee for microchipping is for the implantation by one of our veterinarians or veterinary technicians, as well as the initial registration. You will be given a copy of the registration form with your dog’s unique microchip number. Please contact Park Road Veterinary Clinic for pricing.
