Has anyone here micro-chipped their pet?What was your experience with it? Did your cat/dog do O.K. with the procedure? Do you feel like this will help get your pet back to you in case they get lost?

As long as it won't hurt the animal, I think it's a good idea. It's nice to know that if your pet slips out of it's collar, animal control has a way of locating its owners and retuning the pet to the people who love it.

My dog is micro-chipped. She didn't mind at all and she's a small dog. I think it's pretty important to do it these days when pets don't have to be registered. Also since people now steal pedigree dogs to sell to others, i've heard quite a few of these stories.

I don't have a pet myself, but my friend has done this and he feels way more secure with it. Its definately a good idea as it doesn't even hurt the dog.

I just had my puppy neutered and when I took him in for the procedure, they ask me if I wanted to have him microchiped while he was asleep. I ask how much it cost and she said $40. I opted to not do it. I keep him in the house all the time. When he goes out, I am with him and have him on a lease. I just could not see paying that much to have it done. A tag for his collar is much cheaper.

The vet told me that the chip just goes under the skin.

dogs, microchip in your pets for protection - my dog who may end up getting the micro chip for 
keeping track of her.
We thought about getting our dog microchipped. I think that it is a great idea when you have an animal. My only concern is putting her through the proceedure to have it done. I dont want to see her in pain. I do think that with it there is always a better chance in getting her returned.
