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.
