A microchip is a very small chip (the size of a grain of rice) that allows your pet to be identifed when it is found and scanned. Each microchip has a unique number that can be read by portable scanners at most vets, local authorities and rescue shelters. It is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades. Sedation is not necessary as this procedure causes minimal discomfort. It will soon likely become a legal requirement for all dogs to be microchipped.
