The microchip, which is programmed with an identification number, is encased in a biocompatible glad container small enough to fit into a hypodermic needle.  Once an animal is injected with the chip, it can be identified throughout its life by this one-of-a-kind number anywhere in the United States.  A painless special scanner is passed over the animal and the microchip sends a radio signal through the skin back to the scanner to read the chip.  The chip number is then displayed in the scanner viewing window.  Microchips are especially helpful when a pets tag is worn and illegible. Microchip your Pet


Microchips are tiny capsules the size of a grain of rice that contain a unique identification number that links you and your pet


Inserting the microchip under your pet's skin is quick, sterile, and no more painful than a routine vaccination


Microchips are great for cats clever enough to remove their collars
