As chihuahua owners, we understand that keeping track of our puppies might be difficult at times, that is why microchipping your chihuahua puppy is so important. All our chihuahua puppies come to new homes fully vaccinated and microchipped.
In this short article let me help you with some information where and how you can officially register a microchip number of your chihuahua.
"A dog was found 260 miles from home thanks to the microchip she was implanted with", and there are numerous other stories of lost and stolen dogs being reunited with their owners after being scanned for their registered microchip.
Furthermore, it is a legal requirement and most common travel requirement for any dog, but what does it mean for your pet to be microchipped, and how does this keep your pet safe?
A rice grain-sized microchip is a single identification number injected under the dog skin and linked to a microchip registry that vets can use to scan and identify the microchip. This registry keeps track of a variety of data, including:
Name of the owner and residence address.
Contact information for the owner, including their home phone number, mobile phone number, and email address.
Your Veterinarian address and information.
The number that identifies your pet.
Name, gender, and birthdate of the dog.
Breed, color, and any distinguishing markings
Veterinarians can easily cross-reference this data by scanning a barcode that is kept in a database that has been authorized by the government.
