Q:

I've been told this requires a pretty large-gauge needle, therefore microchipping is often done on animals who are under anesthesia for other purposes (e.g., spaying or neutering). Is the process very painful for a cat?

A:

It is a larger gauge needle than a regular vaccination. However, it is not necessary to require anesthesia. It's a very quick process and only takes a minute. If you, however, are going to be getting a surgery done at the same time, it makes sense to do it all at once. Again, it's not necessary and this is common protocol amongst veterinary clinics. Thanks!

Q:

What brand of microchip would be inserted? Is there a registration fee with the microchip company?

A:

We use Home Again. The $19 covers the registration fee as well.
