Avoid the heartbreak of losing your pet. If your pet has a microchip, the chances of it being reunited with you are greatly increased. A microchip, which is a tiny device about the size and shape of a grain of rice, is placed just under the loose skin at the back of the neck. When a lost dog or cat without an ID tag is found, a veterinarian or veterinary technician will use a handheld microchip scanner to check for a chip. If the pet has one, it will transmit its ID number to the scanner via a low-frequency radio wave. The veterinary hospital then calls the chip manufacturer, retrieves the pet owner's contact information, and calls the owner.
