Smile Microchipping

Heya all

I was just wondering if there is an advised age to get a puppy microchipped. Would it be best to do it as soon as possible or is there a certain age the pup has to be?

Thanks!

All of my dogs are chipped when they're altered, so my pups are done between 4 and 6 months and any rescues are done immediately. That way they're under while it's being put in. While some people do in without anesthesia, I would rather spare them any unnecessary pain if possible. It may only be the size of a grain of rice but I've seen it done many times and it is a bit painful.

Thanks! The breeder offered to get it done with the first set of vacs, but I thought I remembered someone saying they had to be six months. Must have been my imagination

Hehe, thanks again!

My dog was not "under" when she had hers put it. It wasn't painful at all for her, no yelping, or discomfort.

It took a fraction of a second. The trick is REGISTERING the microchip, otherwise it's no good!

My breeder chipped my dog before I got her. I picked her up at 9 weeks.
