A microchip is a small, electronic chip about the size of a grain of rice that’s implanted just under your pet’s skin. Microchips can make all the difference when it comes to reuniting with a lost or stolen pet.

How does a microchip help reunite a lost pet with its owner? How does a veterinarian scan for a pet’s microchip, and what information does a microchip provide?

Dr. Margaret Courter and her dog, Luna, show us how to scan a microchip.
