Boomer is the only one that is chipped, I did this after he got out of our fenced in yard and someone took off with him. Since then I had him chipped and wears and id.

As for sedating them, Boomer usually quite a wimp but did not say boo when the vet inserted the chip in him. I couldn't see having to put him under for something like that. If he was going under another procedure then getting it done at the same time would be a good idea.

I might get Kassie and Tilly done later. Boomer, due to his need to get out and roam, seem more urgent at the moment.

Peyton is chipped and carries 3 id tags. Her rabies, her AVID and her own with 4 telephone numbers. Her collar is always on except when she gets a bath and is never left outside without someone being with her.

She didn't react at all when she was chipped. It was done at the shelter. It was my understanding that it was mandatory like being spayed. I was there when it was done, it's about the size of a grain of large rice and have seen no ill effects.

Both dogs and both cats are chipped.

I didn't see Sarama or Shadow chipped. Firdaus made a fuss, but she always does with shots. Docket also made a fuss . . . but Docket always makes a fuss at any kind of physical discomfort . . . so in terms of the experience . . . I missed the two stoics getting their's.

Two of those chips were mandatory . . . the others were volintary . . its not very expensive, especially if you go to microchip clinic at your local shleter or breed club (I've seen both). Even doing it at the vet wasn't too bad.

All my cats were chipped (this reminds me I have to finish changing Shadow's info to ACampbell's on her chip) and so was my mom's cat, Phantom. Shadow and Phantom are small cats (7 - 8lbs) and didn't react to the needle any more than they would have a vaccination shot. I honestly don't think it hurts any more than those.

Whenever I donate blood they haul out this big needle with this HUGE scary gap at the end, but . . . it doesn't actually hurt much when they slide it in. Bigger needles just look scarier.

My dog, when I got her microchipping wasn't that common. The shelter we got her from tattooed her hip. I've got to wonder, though, if she had been lost and ended up in a shelter . . . who the heck is going to check on the inner hip for a tattoo? Her hair had grown back over it so they would have had to shave her, practically, to see it.

Shippo is microchipped. I adopted Eevee before the shelters started microchipping as a common practice. I might chip her during a dental, although I can't imagine her running off, ever.

None of my animals are.

I *almost* adopted a chipped dog, so if someone else did it, I would live with it but I wont do it myself.

I dont like the idea of a chip in my dog and I am not convinced that it will not cause problems down the road.

You have to pay a yearly fee? What did it initially cost to chip her out of curiosity.

I saw that too. There was an upfront cost to get the chip put in. When I registered it with "Homeagain", they offered a service for 15 bucks annually to provide alerts and such through email everytime the chip was scanned. I just didn't do that. I have her profile registered and I can still access it with the free reg.

Walker is chipped He got chipped at a few weeks when he left the shelter (the shelter said 3 mths i say bs honestly,) and he didnt even flinch

Scirocco cant be since he has no body fat, he does have tatoos in both ears too.

Patches was done when we got her.

and the 2 little ones at moms dont because Whisper has no body fat either and Guiness will get done when mom gets another job.
