What’s a Microchip?

Microchips are tiny transponders that can be implanted in your pet’s skin and act as identifiers. They are about the size of a grain of rice and can be inserted with a needle in a quick and relatively painless way (no anesthesia necessary).


Each microchip contains a registration number, so anyone with a handheld microchip scanner can access your name and contact information. Like a collar, a microchip can be a good backup for pet identification in the event your pet gets lost and ends up at a veterinary office, animal shelter, or with an animal control officer.

Why Microchipping

Microchipping your pet is an easy long term solution to find and identify your furry family in case she or he gets lost. Microchips last up to 25 years and will remain permanently fixed as opposed to other methods of identification like a tag or collar. What’s more, 75% of lost, microchipped cats and dogs were connected back to their parents because of the presence of a microchip.

Our Process

When you’re ready to move forward, one of our BetterVet doctors on a scheduled home visit can implant the microchip using a needle. Note that microchipping can be bundled with other planned visits, such as wellness exams, vaccination, or dental cleaning. Once microchipped, any animal care provider will be able to scan the registration number and access your contact details. Talk to one of our veterinarians today and see how microchipping can provide you peace of mind.
