It could be the difference between lost and found.

Why microchip?

You've latched the gate, fastened the collar, and put your feet up—but your furry friend will always have a nose for trouble. Should the unthinkable happen and your pet goes missing, a microchip could help your reunion happen sooner.

The procedure to insert a microchip under your pet’s skin is quick and causes minimal discomfort, so the event itself shouldn't be dramatic—but the benefits are. The microchip contains a unique identifier that corresponds to your contact information in a central database. That means a microchip is only as good as the information attached to it. With a Pet Protection Services Membership, you can be rest assured we’re always there to identify your pet and reunite you safely and securely.

Here's what you need to know about microchipping:

    • The procedure is nothing more than an injection similar to a vaccine or routine shot that inserts the microchip—which is about the size of a grain of rice—under your pet’s skin between the shoulder blades.
    • A microchip is not a GPS, so it cannot be used to locate your pet. But it can be used to identify him or her and facilitate a quick reunion.
    • It’s important to keep your contact information up to date so you can be notified when your pet is found.
    • Having a microchip is only the first step. By registering your pet’s number in our database, you’ll increase your chances of a happy and healthy reunion with your pet. You can either register your pet's microchip online or call us at 1-866-597-2424.

With a Pet Protection Services membership, you can rest easy knowing your four-legged friend is registered with one of the leading pet recovery teams in North America. Our specialists are available 24/7 to launch the recovery process—and help ensure a faster reunion with your furry troublemaker.
