Microchipping in North Charleston

Microchipping

Microchipping is a great way to have permanent identification for your pet if they become lost. A microchip is a tiny RFID (radio-frequency identification device) inserted under your pet’s skin that can be detected with a scanner.  The identification number on the chip will lead us to your address and phone number so we can return your pet to you as quickly as possible. This device does not track and is not GPS. If your pet is found, any veterinarian, shelter, or animal control center can scan for the identification number. Even if your pet wears id tags they should be microchipped because tags and collars can easily become lost or removed. Remember to keep your information current with the database anytime you move or change your phone number so you can be easily contacted.
