Microchips have been the "State of the Art" for animal identification for the past 10 or 15 years, replacing tattooing. Microchips are safe, effective, and although there are several microchop brands, the scanners are now universal, so any chip can be read by current scanners. Microchips can be placed in the exam room, however since they require a large bore needle for insertion, they are often done when the pet is anesthetized for another procedure, such as spaying. That said, Dr. Godwin reports that she microchipped her own cat while he was awake, and he still loves her.
