Question Microchip

Just wondering how many people have their puppy or puppies microchipped? At what age was your puppy when you got it done and where did you get it done?My vet doesn't do it because she says it interferes with Acupuncture which she does. However, she did recommend other vets that do it. Actually, did anyone ever get it done at a Hav health clinic? I think I noticed in our local club that when they check CERF etc they have a vet available for microchips.

Rita, I try to have my puppies microchipped before they leave to their new homes. Yes, I recommend you do it.

My two are done, they both had it done during their spay/nueter surgery. They don't have to be under to have it done though, as I understand.

I microchip my puppies before they go home.
All my other dogs I had microchipped also.
It's a large shot, some of them yelp, some don't. It's over in a second and doesn't seem to bother them at all!

I dropped Logan off at the vets today for his snip snip = I was soooo sad. He looked so pathetic lookin up at me wondering where I was going. He will be mincrochipped while he is under, just like I did both girls when they were spayed. It is just an extra measure of protection.,

I witnessed both my boys get microchipped- and they didn't even know it happened. Jasper had his done by the breeder as we were signing papers at 8 weeks. And Cash was done by the Vet at 12 weeks. Neither of them even squirmed.

Missy, Jasper & Cash

Bugsy was micrhochipped during one of his routine shots when I got him. at our vet's. Romeo and Brandy were not microchipped yet, but I am going to get it done at Petfood Express (our local chain store) when they have their weekly vet clinics. They offer microchihpping as well as routine shots. My hubby is very sceptical about the effectivness of microchipping. He doesn't believe that anyone will want to return a puppy as cute as Bugsy.
