We offer to microchip your puppy for an additional $50. This fee includes the chip & registration!
According to statistics, one in three pets become lost at some point in their lives, and yours could very well be one of them. For us at the ANKC, that’s more than enough reason to microchip your canine companion. But, how do dog microchips work? In honor of RSPCA, we spell out the details of microchipping and its importance.

What is a microchip? A microchip is a radio-frequency identification transponder that carries a unique identification number, and is roughly the size of a grain of rice. When the microchip is scanned by a vet or shelter, it transmits the ID number. There’s no battery, no power required, and no moving parts. The microchip is injected under the loose skin between your dog’s shoulder blades and can be done in your vet’s office. It’s no more invasive than a vaccination. So, that’s it?
