Microchipping

Simple, Safe, and Potentially Life-Saving!

Microchips have helped reunite thousands of pets with their families, whether the pet ran away or is misplaced by a natural disaster. We offer the Avid microchip to increase the chances of a safe recovery. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is inserted under your pet’s skin in a single simple injection, just like a vaccine. The microchip has a code that is unique to your pet, the way your social security number is unique to you. When a pet is found and scanned, the unique code can be traced back to you through your database registration at www.avidid.com, allowing you and your pet to be happily reunited. After your dog or cat is microchipped, you must register at www.avidid.com (see enrollment fees below), a national pet registry service that keeps contact information current, making it easier for you and your lost pet to be reunited.
