Our microchips are guaranteed for life. With our standard microchips at 12mm x 2mm, they’re not much bigger than a grain of rice and coated with an advanced polymer (Parylene C), designed to react with the animal’s body to ‘bond’ them in place. A quick scan with a handheld device reads the chip and finds your contact details, so you and your pet are reunited very quickly.
At 8mm x 1.4mm, our mini-chips are even smaller! Due to their reduced size we recommend they are only implanted into miniature breeds and small species.
The microchips require no batteries at they use RFID (Radio Frequency Identification Device) technology, which is passive until activated by a scanner, and remain operative for the lifetime of your pet. They work instantly, are biocompatible, impermeable and chemically stable. Owner and pet details are registered by the implanter and with Petlog, the Kennel Club’s database of microchipped pets.
Microchipping your pet
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.
What is a pet microchip scanner?
Pet microchip scanners are small handheld devices used by pet professionals to identify your pet by scanning its microchip. They are similar in size to a large calculator and tuned into the radio frequencies of pet microchips, displaying the pet’s unique microchip number on screen when scanned.
Pet-ID Microchips ensure that all pet professionals using our products are trained how to implant and scan Pet-ID Microchips and are registered with both us and Petlog.
Even though they have a lifetime guarantee, for additional assurance, we recommend you have your pet’s microchip check scanned by a pet professional once per year. It’s easy to do this during annual check-ups and vaccinations.
