Microchipping a Dog

A microchip is an electronic chip that is approximately the size of a grain of rice. Microchips are placed, by a needle, under the skin between the shoulder blades. Each microchip has a number associated with it and is detected by a microchip scanner.

Why is it a good idea to microchip my dog?


Microchipping is a safe and effective way to ensure the return of your pet if you become separated. You can change your contact information, address, or any other important information online as needed. The microchip will last the lifetime of your pet.

How much does it cost to microchip a dog?


Please call us at the clinic, 403-457-0911, to discuss the cost.
