Micro-chipping your pet involves the injection of a tiny micro-chip under your animals skin by your veterinarian. This chip allows the township Animal Control Officer with the help of a special scanner to identify the animal. This gives the best chance, along with your license tag, for a lost animal to be returned to you.
Every year thousands of lost animals are destroyed due to the fact that authorities do not know to whom they belong. The costs run approximately $40 depending on your veterinarian. Please check with your veterinarian for further information on this important service.
