What is a Pet Microchip?
A pet microchip is a small, permanent identification chip that's about the size of a grain of rice. It's injected between the shoulder blades with a needle, and the process is about as quick as a vaccination. Most pets go through the one-time process with ease.
Petcare Express microchips are internationally recognized and meet ISO requirements (International Organization for Standardization). This promotes compatibility between chips and scanners. Petcare Express uses universal scanners, which read multiple microchip frequencies sold by different microchip manufacturers.
Your pet’s microchip ID code, just like your pet, is one of a kind. When your lost pet is taken to an animal shelter or veterinary clinic, they will scan your pet for a microchip and read its unique code. This code is stored with your pet’s profile and linked to your contact information.
Registration and keeping your contact information updated is just as important as microchipping.
Petcare Express automatically registers every recorded and implanted microchip into the found.org database within 5 days. Found Animals Microchip Registry is a free, national, nonprofit database that was conceived in support of a single belief: all lost pets need to find their way home.
Identification tags can become lost easily, and tattoos may not always be legible. Only about 15% of dogs and 2% of cats without permanent identification return home to their owners. Approximately 9 million companion animals are admitted to shelters in the U.S. every year. Many of these are euthanized because their owners cannot be found.
Only a pet microchip can offer a truly permanent identification. Hundreds of thousands of pets have returned home thanks to a microchip.
The American Veterinary Medical Association, the American Animal Hospital Association and the Humane Society of the United States all recommend microchipping.
