For those of us who have a cat or a dog, they are a part of our family and we want to make sure they are healthy and safe. Now you can take it one step further with micro-chipping your pet.

We all know that caring for a pet can be expensive, but with some of the latest technology now somethings like micro-chipping is very affordable. The average cost in this area is $25-30 and can be done very quickly, with little or no discomfort to your pet.

If you have a regular veterinarian he/she can easily do the procedure, or Animal Allies and PetCare of Duluth also offer this service to the general public. Both of our dogs and our cat are chipped along with I.D. tags, but collars do come off accidentally, so keep your pet off a Lost poster, with extra help from a microchip!
