Yes or No?

Do you have a microchip in your Hav?

Yes, and my puppies all get a microchip before they leave.

Yes, I got Tucker's put in when he was neutered. The chip is the size of a grain of rice, and my vet said if it was possible it was good to have it put in when they were under, because it is a bit painful, otherwise.

But, if Kimberly has her puppies get theirs before then, it must not be too bad.

All of my dogs are chipped. They were all chipped before we brought them home from the breeders

Yes, both of my dogs are chipped. When adopted they both had chips, I just had to register them.

Why *wouldn't* someone chip their dog? I'm not asking to be annoying, I'm really curious. It makes complete sense to do it to me.

Sheri, my vet has asked me a few times why I don't do my own vaccines because the needle is much, much smaller than the microchip is. I know many breeders who will do vaccines, but won't do the microchip because of the size. It isn't not something I can do by myself and it takes a huge bonus treat to get through it!

Carolina, I've heard one concern about some worries about cancer from them. I don't think there are any studies that prove a link though.

i encourage all of my family members to chip their dogs.

i really can't think of a logical reason not to. it's inexpensive, and won't fall off like a collar will or tags. i just hope vets are scanning chips on all "new" patients...and rescues too.
