Just thought that it would be safer if I could get Milo microchipped, just in case she’s lost.
The injection of a microship takes about a minute or so, using a needle as big as those used when you’re donating your blood. I don’t know how Milo went through the whole process with only a little squeak, and then back to her jumpy-self again. She’s a brave puppy ya know.
The vet prepares for the microchipping while Milo is still waving her tail in joy, not knowing she’s gonna be injected later on. The vet then cleanses the target area where the microchip will be implanted.
Personally, I’m afraid of needles. A needle this big would scare me off, but luckily, I don’t need to be microchipped. The dog seems to be handling it quite well. She went through the whole process with a little squeak and that’s all.
Cleaning her up and she was scanned to confirm the microchip’s ID. Done!
Besides microchipping, female dogs here are even de-sexed (surgical removal of the ovaries and uterus) to prevent them from getting unwanted off-springs, thus, reducing the unwanted, homeless, stray dogs population. I’m not sure whether I’m gonna do it on Milo, I thought it’s a bit harsh for her, but I’m not asking for more puppies though, coz my speakers are dead by now thanks to Milo.
