    Default Anyone here take thier dog to be chipped??

    I was curious whether they have to put them under with general anesthesia or if its just a quick shot. I think its well worth the $$$ spent but my poor Sharpie would be traumatized if he had to have any more "operations" with anesthesia!

    You know -- microchipped. That way if they ever lose their way , even if the collar falls off they can be scanned at the pound and all your info turns up and they are returned to you.

    I called the Humane Society and they told me its an injection between the shoulder blades and runs around $40. I think it'd be well worth it for my Buster!

    It only takes a minute and hurts about as much as getting a shot. My dog's cost $25.00.

    I don't think they put them out. The microchip itself is really small so I think it's just like a regular vaccination shot...

    My dog was chipped by the breeder, before I took her. But I understand that there is no anaesthesia involved, and minimal pain. I did have to pay to register the microchip # to my name, which cost $17, and I think it's definitely worth it.

    You couldn't pay me to do that. It's none of their business where my dog is at any given moment, and once we accept this, we'll accept it in our kids for the same reason (safety).. it's a slippery slope I have no desire to go down.

    As far as I know -- there is no way to track an animal and I can't think of a single reason why they would. Buster will tell you his life isn't all that exciting.

    The process that the Humane Society explained to me is that if the animal is loose and has no collar they can be scanned at the dog pound and tracked to your address and info. Collars come off -- and then your beloved family member becomes just another stray on the street. This way the dog can be returned to you.

    I was talking to someone at the Humane Society that told me this is a great thing. All they care about is that more dogs are returned to their owners rather than euthanized.
