Why Microchipping Matters

Microchipping is a permanent way to identify your pet, unlike collars or tags that might go missing. It involves placing a tiny chip, as small as a grain of rice, under your pet’s skin, with a unique ID number registered in a national database. If your pet gets lost or stolen, a vet, shelter, or rescue organization can scan the chip to access your contact details, making a reunion easier and less stressful.

This is especially important for exotic pets like Birds, rabbits, ferrets and reptiles. Knowing your pet is microchipped brings peace of mind and can help you comply with local regulations in some areas.

Microchipping for Exotic Companions

Rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs, chinchillas, reptiles, and a variety of small mammals also deserve the safety and security that microchipping provides.

Benefits of Exotic Pet Microchipping:
