Microchip Pet Identification

Check out our Facebook page and you will find a number of stories of animals finding their way home because of a microchip even many years later. In fact here in Abbotsford we had a dog brought to us who had been missing for 3 years and found his way home to Comox all because of his microchip! Microchips can be given as an outpatient procedure and only takes 5 minutes. A small capsule is injected under the skin which when scanned gives your pet his/her unique number. Microchips have the advantage of not fading, like a tattoo, and being recognized worldwide. They are such a great method of reuniting owners with their pets that in England they have made it mandatory for all pets!
