I had some questions recently about microchips for dogs and cats. I answered a question last week about if it hurts and have had some new questions about the cost.

The average cost to have a microchip implanted is around $60 to $70, which is a one–time fee and often includes registration in a pet recovery database. If your pet was adopted from a shelter or purchased from a breeder, your pet may already have a microchip. Consult your pet adoption paperwork, or have your pet scanned for a microchip the next time he comes in to our clinic. We can reveal the unique microchip ID number and register it.

If your pet doesn’t have a microchip and you are interested, please let us know.
