Microchipping is arguably the best way to ensure that your pet returns home safe and sound in the event that it becomes lost. Why? Unlike tags and collars, microchips are embeded just underneath the skin of your pet (in the scruff area) and will not fall or break off. The chip contains a unique number that is associated with your pet. A quick scan and we can locate your contact information (only that which you designate) and can be in touch with you to reunite you with your loving pet.
