Microchipping a Dog

Microchipping is a permanent way of identifying your pet. At the time of implanting, the veterinary office will submit your basic information to the Eidap Animal Registry. If you move or change your phone number, it is a good idea to update this with the microchipping company.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?

The microchipping process of identification makes the identified animal’s contact information readily available to veterinarians, animal shelter, and dog pounds. The registry is available 24 hours/day 365 days/year via the internet providing all the necessary information needed to reunite a lost animal with the owner.

How does a microchipping work and is it safe for my dog?

A microchip is a small object inserted under the skin of your animal, and it can then be read with a microchip scanner. Each microchip has an individual number assigned to it, and the number will be recorded in your pet’s file, and registered with the microchip company.

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?
