What is a Pet-ID Microchip?

A microchip is a passive transponder which uses RFID technology. Pet-ID Microchips are encased in biocompatible glass and coated with Parylene-C,

Pet-ID Microchips produce 134.2 kHz FDX-B microchips to ISO Standard 11784/11785 and to our manufacture’s code 958.

We advocate the use of 12mm microchips for companion animals. We also offer mini microchips (8mm) which are recommended for implantation int small and exotic species and miniature breeds. Our microhips are available in needle assembly with reusable implant gun and 2 types of syringe.

What is Parylene-C?

Parylene-C is a medical grade coating which forms an irregular surface allowing tissue fibres to bond and grow around the chip thus preventing the possibility of migration. Once implanted correctly, the process starts 3-4 days after implantation and within four weeks the microchip should be completely encapsulated.

Pet-ID Microchip Scanners

A pet microchip scanner, or reader, is a handheld device tuned to the frequency of the implanted microchip. Pet-ID Microchips offer a range of scanners to suit individual needs from the small but handy Halo scanner to the more multi-functional RT100 scanner.

We have also recently relaunched our popular Pet-ID IDentifier scanner which now comes in a sturdy carry case.
