Dog ID Tags verses Microchips 

If your pet is lost, a microchip or identification tag might be his or her ticket home. Since humans can't communicate with pets, license tags or a microchip will ensure that he doesn't end up at the local pound, shelter, with another family or worse.

Tagging - The most common and economical way to identify your pet is with pet tags/collar. However pet tagging has its downside because pet tags can be lost or deliberately removed by a pet thief.


Microchips - are tiny metal transponders about the size of an uncooked rice grain. Microchips carry a unique identification number and are implanted using a needle just below your pet's skin (usually in the scruff of their neck).

Microchips are registered with local or national databases and many city pounds, vets and shelters have their own scanners to read the chips of stray animals. Once the microchip is read, the staff can call the 24-hour regional or national hotline and get your contact information.

Having your pet microchipped is as quick and uncomfortable as a vaccination. Microchips are also more convenient then tattoos because a frightened dog doesn't need to be shaved to locate it.  Imagine if your puppy was to get stolen all you would have to do is all your local vets and shelters give them their microchip number and the name of the breed of puppy and they will scan any animals that come in with that description to make sure that it is not your puppy..  If they were to locate your puppy all of your contact information is plugged into their system.

Getting your puppy microchiped with us will  include the chip and the fee for life time registration, the insertion and the paperwork for only $35.  Who wouldnt want to get their puppy chipped?
