Yes, the computer age has come to animals. Your pet can have a tiny microchip carrying a unique identification number inserted under its skin. This number corresponds to owner identification information that is entered into a national database. Microchipping, which is performed in many veterinary clinics, is inexpensive, quick, safe, and virtually painless for the animal. The microchip, slightly larger than a grain of rice, is injected with a special syringe and needle just under the pet’s skin.
