What is microchipping, why use it, and how does it work?
Well, it's not that complicated.
Microchipping is the implantation of an identifying integrated circuit under the skin of an animal; and it's come a long way in the last 20 years. Why microchip your pet? The most obvious reason is to help you recover your lost pet. Another prevalent use of microchipping is for the unique identification of an animal.
The microchip is encoded with your information and your pet's information. If your lost pet is found by someone, they can take the animal to a shelter, rescue organization or veterinarian, where the animal can be scanned for the presence of a chip. Then, voila! Your information will be there, and you and your pet can be reunited.
Microchipping should not be hailed as the be-all-and-end-all of pet identification. Collar ID tags are still a must, and can quickly inform someone of an implanted chip. This tag can often circumnavigate the need for the actual scanning process, reuniting pets with their families very quickly. Here's a true story that illustrates one scenario.
