I haven't seen any posts since 2006 and am wondering whether I should have my dog chipped when she gets spayed next month.
Are there any cons?
Definitely get her chipped. It's the only way you can prove beyond any doubt that she's your dog if she should ever get lost. No need to wait until she's spayed, unless that happens to be her next vet appointment, as they don't need to knock her out to chip her.
KSU's College of VetMed uses the AKC's "Home Again" program
Either of the two, chip her.
Puff [YF, AKC field line (from competing HT/FT breeder) 62 lbs, dob: 8-'01]
Bess [BF, AKC bench line (from competing show breeder) 55 lbs., 1967-1981] "Poor Bess, the Wonder Dog":
The only con is if she happens to get out in your neighborhood without a collar, it will require the person to take her to a vet or shelter to have the chip read. The pro is that if someone finds your dog and decides to keep her (whether or not she has a collar on), when they take her to the vet for a check up (if they do) the vet should check for a chip and will find your info at that time. It's just an added layer of safety.
Thanks! She'll get chipped
Not to mention, it saves you money by having it done at the same time, at least at my vet it saved me a bundle. I just sent in Maggie's paperwork to have it activated and I feel like a weight has been lifted now that I know she's microchiped. That's just me though.
