How It Works
Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. A veterinarian simply injects the microchip – which is about the size of a grain of rice – beneath the surface of your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine injection. It takes only a few seconds and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anesthetic is required. Our veterinarians are extremely gentle and treat your pet with care to ensure that they feel relaxed before and after the injection.
What Is a Microchip?
A HomeAgain microchip is not a GPS tracking device. Rather, it is a radio-frequency identification (RFID) implant. The microchip does not have a battery or any moving parts, so it will never wear out or need to be replaced. Your pet’s microchip will last for his or her lifetime.
If someone finds your lost pet, they can bring the animal to a vet or shelter where they will be scanned for a microchip. If your pet is microchipped, their unique ID number will be revealed and you will be contacted.
