I took my pup in for her boosters today and figured since It was gonna be a while before her next checkup that it would be a good idea to get her chipped while I was there. Shes pretty good with her shots and i was suprised at how well she handled the needle used to implant the chip. It has to be the scariest needle I've seen in a long time but all she did was let out a little yelp and held no grudges to vet. Another thing that suprised me was the price. It costed only $25, i was expecting at least twice that. Now I'm glad I finally got it done and I can now apply for her lifetime liscence.

Lifetime license?


I had Chloe microchipped while she was spayed. We killed 2 birds with one stone that way, and she didn't suffer the thick needle.

In PA once a dog is permanently identified by either a chip or a tattoo they allow you purchase a lifetime liscence for the dog. Its very reasonably priced at $31 for a fixed dog and $51 for unaltered dogs.

I believe for the one year liscence in PA it is $6 for fixed dogs and $8 for unaltered.

I'm glad you said that Sandy because I was sitting here scratching my head wondering if I hadn't been paying for something that I should have been

I wish we did lifetime licenses. I think I only pay $5 for Jersey's annual tag. Even though it's not expensive, I would like the convenience of a one time deal.

In our area, the dog license is paid when the dog gets it's rabies shot, so there is no separate charge.

I'm glad things went well with the chipping. I had Maggie's implanted during her spay surgery, so she didn't feel it (she's my drama queen; she hates the vet). Calvin had his done during his regular check up and wagged his tail the whole time....and YES, that needle is HUGE....so I was proud of him.

Duke was chipped last month and he hated the needle! I think it freaked him out when they held him and then the needle came and he got so scared he had an accident on the tech's lap! But, he was back to normal right afterward and ready to play.

Wish we could have a lifetime license. Ours is only $4 a year for fixed, but somewhere around $40 if they aren't. Actually, our area is starting to push for requiring spay and neuters unless you have a breeders' license. Good idea, but implementation will be difficult because I think some will just not tag their dogs.

Ouch 40 bux? I'm guessing there is alot of untagged dogs in your area already for that reason. A requiremant of spaying and neutering is certainly a good idea providing that there is leeway for dogs that compete in events that require unaltered dogs in the rules. Or an even better solution would be allowing fixed dogs to compete in field events.

I'm not really sure what a license even is. If FL requires one... well I haven't paid for one, lol. Probably something I should check into...

Nick, yes Florida does require a license. At least where I live (just north of Tampa). My vet's office automatically does it when Jersey is there for her annual vaccinations.

Jen,

Alright, thanks for the info. I guess I'll ask my vet about it on Banjo's next appointment.

Luv your avatar Nick


Registration is very important. Apart from the city/county knowing you have a dog, if something happens, they know to contact you.
