Micro chipping is a great way to increase the likely hood that if your pet is ever lost it will be returned to you. The micro chipping data base keeps track of your pet and will alert you if your pet is found. It is a way to prove the dog is yours if stolen or their collar is lost.
Please visit your pet's veterinary care team for information. The price varies widely and the chip has to be registered. but some organizations will subsidize or provide cheap chipping. Both Kindest Cut and MNSNAP are organizations that visit Mankato and other surrounding areas and will provide micro-chipping at a reduced cost for those with lower incomes.
