A microchip can provide a lifetime of permanent identification if your dog or cat gets lost.

Microchipping is a must on the To Do List of any responsible pet owner. No matter how much care you take, accidents can happen. In a split second, your pet can get lost and be separated from you. Having them microchipped greatly increases your chances of reunion. For more details on our microchipping rates and services simply call us at 902-863-3157.

What is a pet microchip?

A microchip and a GPS are two completely different things. Microchips do not track your pet’s location. Rather, they contain details about your pet and your contact information. So, when your pet is found by an animal rescue or other veterinary team, they can scan the microchip and extract your information.

Is microchipping safe for dogs and cats?

Definitely! The composition of the chip and the way it is inserted are completely safe. The microchip is the size of a grain of rise, and is made up of materials compatible with your pet’s body. Inserting the chip requires no anesthesia – your pet will feel as if they are receiving a vaccine injection. We usually place the chip just underneath the skin, in between the collarbones.
