Microchipping a Dog

Microchipping is the only permanent way to identify an animal. Collars can fall off and tattoos can become illegible over time. Microchipping your animal is also the best hope to have it returned home if it gets lost.

Why is it important to ensure my dog is microchipped?

Microchipping your dog will allow your dog to be identified at every clinic and shelter in Canada. The microchip will provide the clinic or shelter with the owner information to return the dog home.

How does a microchip work and is it safe for my dog?

A microchip is a very small data chip that when scanned, brings up a serial number that a veterinarian or the shelter worker can look up online. The serial number is logged along with your contact information so that you can be found and contacted in the event your pet turns up lost. The chip is injected under the skin at the back of the neck and stays there permanently.

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?

Microchipping is a quick and relatively inexpensive procedure. Contact your veterinarian’s office to discuss the costs associated with microchipping.
