FAQ

A pet microchip is a tiny computer chip with a unique serial number on it. It's the size of a grain of rice and can be injected into the animal's scruff of the neck in a quick and painless procedure.

Micro chips are crucial since they save your pet's necessary information. The owner's name, address, and contact information are normally included, as well as the pet's name, age, and description.

If your pet goes missing, a veterinarian can read the chip and check the animal's information using a microchip scanner. After that, the microchip can serve as proof of ownership, ensuring that your pet is returned to you.

You must remember to update your pet microchip to ensure that you can be quickly located if your pet wanders off. If your address, ownership, or contact information changes, you can update your micro chip information. You can do so by contacting the microchipping database that has your dog's or cat's information. What happens if I don't have my pet microchipped?

Local authorities may punish you if you do not microchip your pet. It also makes it very impossible to reunite lost pets with their owners, as many times when a pet goes missing, its ID tag or collar is also missing. Internal identification allows the owner to be reached at any time, preventing the animal from being given to a rehoming charity or being euthanized.

At Paws in the City, we provide microchipping services. We can implant the microchip in a simple and quick procedure and then take care of the microchip registration for you. If necessary, our vets can also perform microchipping under anaesthetic, so please contact us to schedule your visit.
