Pet Microchipping in Canton, IL
Between the shoulder blades, a rice-grain-sized microchip is implanted under the skin. Each chip contains a special identification code that can only be read by a scanner and lasts the entire lifetime of your pet.
A microchip is implanted beneath your pet’s skin, between the shoulder blades, and is roughly the size and shape of a grain of rice. The implantation of a microchip is quite safe and just takes a few minutes. Each microchip is distinct and contains important details about your pet, like your name, address, and phone number. The pet owner is given a registration form to fill out before the microchip is put in. When you register your pet’s microchip number, your pet is added to a nationwide database for pet recovery. Everywhere in the nation, there are veterinary clinics, animal shelters, and animal control facilities with specialized electronic scanners that can find the microchip and read the identifying number.
A short scan of the microchip shows the identifying number when a lost pet is brought to us by animal control or a kind stranger. The microchip business is informed that a lost pet has been located by making a toll-free phone call to the pet recovery database. After that, the pet’s owner can be contacted, and the two can be reunited!
