What is a Microchip and How Cat and Dog Microchipping Works

Microchipping is a modern marvel in pet identification. It involves the implantation of a tiny, RFID (radio-frequency identification) microchip beneath your pet’s skin, typically between the shoulder blades. This microchip contains a unique identification number that corresponds to your contact details in a secure database.

When a lost pet is found and taken to a shelter or veterinary clinic, they use a scanner to read the microchip’s information. This process allows for swift reunions, ensuring your pet’s safe return home.

We Recommend Cat and Dog Microchips

At Bliss Animal Hospital, we strongly recommend microchipping for all cats and dogs, regardless of their age, breed, or lifestyle. Accidents can happen, and pets may wander or get lost. Microchipping provides a reliable means of identification that can significantly increase the chances of a happy reunion.

Our hospital exclusively utilizes high-quality microchips that adhere to international standards. These microchips are designed to last a lifetime, offering permanent identification for your pet.
