Well, I am surprised that they do it as an operation in London, cus here in Canada it was just like a bad vaccination. They didn't need anesthesia or anything special, just that horrible needle. And, as I said, Chiquitita didn't even moved. I didn't even had to make an appointment or anything like that. They just did it when I took them for a monthly check up. I asked the vet if she could do it, and she said yes. I thought she was gonna give me a "rendez-vous" for another day and give me like directions to follow, like not to feed them or not to give them water certain time before getting there, etc, etc, etc, but nop....she just left the room for a little while and came back with the horrible needle. The whole thing took probably about 15 minutes or less for both my dogs.Jack said:I didn't realise it was actually an operation! I just assumed it would be like a bad vaccination.
Oh dear, poor thing....
Thanks for the infor
Helen and Jack
yeah the needle is pretty intimidating! it's typically a 12 gauge.....xx-nathalie-xx said:my three chi's were all chipped when i got them at 12 weeks........i think it will be best to get them chipped when they go in for their spay or neuter.
Yikes i would be such a wuss ..when i see them with that needle at my baby's :roll:
You know what is kind of ironic, is that novacaine injections sting worse than the microchipping most of the time. We avoid using novacaine/lidocaine/marcaine if we don't have to since usually after that injection the animals go into crazy rage.janiebabes said:oh my when they did Lady they gave her a shot first of novacaine i assume. She yelped! those syringes are huge!!!!!!!!!!!!!! had i known the size i would have requested more than a novacaine injection
