Does getting a microchip hurt my pet?
No more so than when your pet gets annual vaccines. It is done in a few seconds while your pet is awake. No anesthetic is required.
How easy is it to change the information if moving?
A simple phone call to the company that manufactures the chips will get the job done.
Will the microchip stay in place?
Yes, they stay in place and can't fall off like a collar or ID tag.
Where can I get my pet microchipped?
You can have this procedure done at any
veterinarian's office, at the Toledo Area Humane Society or at Humane Ohio (at the time of the spay/neuter only).
How will the person who finds my pet know that he has a microchip?
When a pet is microchipped, the pet parent will get a tag for their collar with an identification number. The tag also comes with an 800 number to call to find the owner's name and contact information, but if the collar has fallen off, the person who finds your animal will need to take him to a veterinarian or animal shelter that has a scanner to check for microchips.
