For dogs, cats, rabbits and ferrets, microchips are inserted via an injection between the shoulder blades, just below the surface of the skin. The injection needle is designed in such a way that the animal experiences virtually no discomfort. In fact, using our needles, most animals don’t feel a thing.

The microchip is a tiny chip, the size of a grain of rice that is permanently implanted in your pet to ensure that it can be identified quickly. Each chip has a unique identification number that links your pet to your details so that you can get it home faster if it were to ever go missing.

The chip is powered by a scanner which sends a signal to the chip and receives the unique identification number stored on it. When a vet, shelter or humane society finds a lost or missing pet, they use the scanner to read your pet’s chip.

How and where is the microchip implanted?

The vet takes a needle containing the microchip fitted with an application gun/syringe. This would be injected in the subcutaneous tissue along the spine between your dogs shoulder blades. The procedure is simple, and your pet wouldn’t feel any discomfort.

Will it hurt my dog?
