It is also a good idea to get an ID microchip in case your dog ever loses his collar.
The microchip is inserted just under the skin and can be read by scanners used by veterinarians and animal welfare organizations.
For a low fee, pet owners can have a coded microchip inserted underneath their pets' skin.
You may also want to discus microchip identification with the vet.
The iBeam's patented light works by way of a tiny microchip housed inside the watch case.
Events - The Humane Society has a regularly updated calendar of events including low cost spay/neutering clinics, vaccination and microchip clinics, pet first aid and CPR clinics, training workshops, and more.
This is important even if you have your dog microchipped because you never know who will find your dog and whether or not they'll go to the trouble of having the microchip scanned.
The microchip, which can be read by scanners at many animal shelters, allows the animal to be identified even without a collar or tags.
