What is a microchip?
 

A microchip is an electronic device that transmits information when it is scanned by a microchip reader. It is a permanent method to identify an animal.

About the size of a rice grain, the microchip is implanted by injecting it under the skin of the neck of the animal. If done correctly, the implant is quick, safe and relatively painless.

A microchip usually lasts the lifetime of a pet.
