Is microchipping painful for my cat? - Countryside Veterinary Clinic

Certainly doesn't seem to be. I've microchipped hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of cats, and it's a syringe with a needle on it. We just place it right under the skin. We barely hear a peep out of them, and they're all done. We just put the hair back. It doesn't bleed. The microchip doesn't migrate, and it's done in no time flat.
