A microchip is a tiny, glass, insert capsule the size of a grain of rice containing an identification number linking you to your pet. If you are unfortunate enough to lose your pet, the person who finds your pet can get your pet 'scanned' in order to locate you, making it much easier to re-unite you with your pet.
How does it work?
If the unthinkable happens and your pet wanders away - a vet, rescue centre or dog warden will use a small hand-held scanner to detect the microchip number. This number is registered with PetLog, the national central database run by the Kennel Club. PetLog will confirm your contact details and you will be reunited with your pet.
Where is the implant site?
Under the skin between the shoulder blades.
How long will it take to implant the microchip?
Just a few moments! In fact, by the time you complete the PetLog registration form your pet will be protected by the latest I.D. technology.
How long does registration last?
Your pet is registered for life!
Can all scanners read pet-detect®?
Pet-detect® uses the latest technology from Germany (FDX-B) and can be scanned ad nauseam by all ISO scanners. Perfect for PETS travel
If you plan to travel abroad your pet must have a microchip in order to comply with the regulations.
