Default Microchip question

I want to microchip Chico but got a couple of questions about it.
Is it painful for the CHI to have it inserted? how is it done?
can you feel the microchip if you pet your Chi.

Thanks

It's about the size of a grain of rice. It is implanted between the shoulders usually, the same way a vaccine is given, through a syringe and needle. Brody had his done when he was asleep for his neuter. I've heard some dogs will yelp and some will act like nothing happened. Just depends on the dog. I could feel Brody's for several months after it was implanted under his skin. It had a bit of swelling and the microchip actually encases itself in connective tissue so that it won't migrate. (They have changed them and they have little holes in them so that the tissue "grabs" onto them now instead of just being loose under the skin). It's been about 8 months since Brody had his implanted and I can't feel it anymore.

My guys are chipped. Some of my past pups had their's done while they were spayed/nuetered so like everyone else said no pain. I've also gotten them done while they were awake, some just didn't care and some yelp it just depends on the dog and I have felt the chip in a couple of dogs but that has been the tinies until they gained more weight and muscle otherwise i don't feel it.

I should have had it done when he was neutered but I didn't *head lowered in shame*... and now I am afraid of hurting him....

I had Gonzo's done when I picked him up from the pound. Yes, he yelped when it was inserted, but after that initial yelp, he was fine. It's like gettting a vacination.
