Question Microchipping

Hi all

Mmmmm, well Chico had his second jabs a month ago now....they wanted to do his microchip the same day, but i wasnt very happy with the nurse that did he jab and he bled quite a lot and was so so scared and i felt he was too small to have the microchip at the time....
I have booked him in for the next worm/flea treatment and chip next week.....His is 15 weeks this week....what ages did you guys have the chip, as the needle was sooooooo big and it just seemed huge in comparison to Chico...?

I got Holly chipped at around 5 months. They have a new mini microchip now as well here in the US..

Here in Canada they do the micro chip when they do the spay/neuter. I can't imagine them being awake, that needle would be big. I don't think I would be able to stay in the room, and I'm the "strong" one. Poor lil things!

Chloe got microchipped during her spay. That's what my vet also recommended since its a big needle.

I had Rocky chipped quite early as I needed him to get his pet passport due to planned vaccation.
I found that vaccinations were worse and hurt more than the microchipping. The needle does seem bigger but it is a lot sharper so it will go in a lot quicker. Rocky was whining during his vaccination but didn't make a sound while being microchipped.
