Microchip Pet Identification
Microchipping has become a very popular and safe way to permanently identify your pet and you as the owner in the unfortunate case that your pet is lost. Microchipping involves placement of a small electronic chip the size and shape of a piece of rice just under the skin in the neck area. A needle is used to inject the chip. The injection is comparable to a regular vaccine injection.
If your pet becomes lost and is transported to a humane society, shelter, or veterinary facility they will be able to scan your pet for the chip and contact you. The scanner is similar to a scanner found in the grocery store.
We advise you to use this system of identification as well as a collar identification system on your pet.
Canine DNA testing is now available through a blood screening called the Wisdom Panel Professional Canine Genetic Analysis. This test has been developed through years of scientific research into the genes that help determine the appearance and behavior traits of dogs. The test is performed with a blood sample drawn from your dog, that will go through a complex analysis to detect specific combinations of genetic markers that will identify a dog’s heritage. DNA testing can be fun for insight on a dog’s appearance, but it can also be an important aid when looking for:
- Adult weight range
- Best way to train, feed, and exercise your dog
- Behavior problems associated with certain breeds
- Potential health risks associated with specific breeds
- Genetic disorders
