Does a microchip need to be removed after a dog dies?

Our question this week was:

Dr. Debra – my dog just died – does his microchip need to be removed?

M. H.


Dear M.H. Thanks for your email. You asked if you need to have a microchip (identification chip) removed after your dog dies. The answer is no. You do not need to have a microchip removed.

I’m sorry for your loss.

Dr. Debra
