Kahlo’s Free Microchipping Event – Saturday, September 16th
Get your dog or cat micro-chipped for free!
Join us on Saturday, September 16th from 10am to 3pm at Kahlo Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, 9900 Pleasant Street, Noblesville, IN.
As a proud Corporate Sponsor of the Human Society for Hamilton County and avid animal lovers ourselves, Kahlo will be providing free microchips (limit 2 per family) to the first 50 animals (cats and dogs) at this special event. When you arrive at the dealership, proceed to the front of the building to claim your ticket for a free microchip for your pet(s). After we have microchipped 50 pets, additional dogs and cats may still be microchipped at the discounted rate of only $10 per pet.
What is a microchip?
A microchip is a small, electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder that is about the same size as a grain of rice. After the microchip is inserted, owners must register their pet(s) so that in the event they become lost, a veterinarian can scan the microchip to find the owner.
How is a microchip implanted into an animal? Is it painful? Does it require surgery or anesthesia?
It is injected under the skin using a hypodermic needle. It is no more painful than a typical injection, although the needle is slightly larger than those used for injection. No surgery or anesthesia is required.
Once the microchip has been implanted, what do I do? Is there any sort of maintenance needed?
There really is no maintenance required for microchips themselves, although you do need to register the microchip and keep your contact information up-to-date in the microchip registration database.
