                                                                          identify lost pets. The chip, which is smaller than your
                        To the              fingernail, goes under a pet’s skin in a similar way that you or your pets
                      Meet Max!             get a shot to keep you healthy. The chip stays under the skin and won’t
                                            fall off the way a collar or tag could. Veterinarians, rescue workers,
                                            and animal shelter staff have scanners to check for microchips. If your
                                            pet is ever lost, they will scan your pet for a microchip and call you!
