MICROCHIPS

Microchips

Microchips in pets can be valuable tool in locating a lost pet. A common misconception is that these chips can be used to locate an animal like GPS. This is not true, although collars are available to do so. The microchip must be manually scanned at either a Veterinary clinic or rescue organization. With this invention, most owners can be reunited with their pets within hours. The old way of calling the local pound, asking neighbors, visiting vet clinics, etc. are over!


The microchip is a small radio frequency module implanted into the fat just beneath the skin. This passive module will emit a frequency to a scanner which will put out an alphanumeric code. This code can be used to access secure information online or by phone to contact an owner directly. Numerous companies manufacture these microchips. Thankfully the market has settled on only a few frequencies; so that most readers will read most chips, regardless of who made them.


These microchips are about the size of a grain of rice and can be implanted at any time. They are cost effective and pose little to no risk to the pet. There is only slight discomfort to the pet during implantation, similar to the needles used to give blood donations. Most animals wince from the slight pain and recover well.
