A microchip is a very small electronic device, about the same size as a grain of rice, which is implanted under your pet’s skin.
Every chip has a unique 15-digit number stored within it, and is encased in a protective shell made of glass or biopolymer. This casing helps to prevent the microchip from causing a reaction or moving around, which can make it difficult to read – it also helps with longevity as your pet’s microchip is designed to last a lifetime.
Microchip numbers are read by a handheld scanner. The unique number is linked to your personal details, so that when your pet is scanned, you can be contacted and reunited with your pet as quickly as possible!
