Here at Jax Equine we use Microchip ID Equine microchips which are vital for the identification of lost or stolen horses. This method of identification was particularly useful after hurricane Katrina in locating displaced animals. The microchip is a tiny computer chip which has an identification number programmed into it and is encapsulated within a biocompatible material. The whole device is small enough to fit inside a hypodermic needle and can be simply injected under the skin of our pets, where it will stay for the life of the animal. This provides a permanent, positive identification which cannot be lost, altered or intentionally removed – a safe, simple and inexpensive way to protect your pet against loss or theft. This procedure is $50 which includes the registration. We recommend this service for all owners seeking to ensure reliable identification for their horses.
