Learn everything on pet microchipping

The microchip is a comprehensive electronic identification system that consists of a small computer chip, the size of a rice, that is placed subcutaneously and is harmless.

This is introduced by a veterinarian with a hypodermic needle and a prosthetic layer is generated around it that prevents its displacement. It does not require surgery. In addition, the microchip is passive, meaning that it does not emit a signal inside the body of the animal nor does it carry batteries for its operation.

This microchip is associated with a unique code, which contains data of the animal and the owner, which can be scanned by any veterinarian. In this way, it guarantees a quick reunion with the animal in case of loss.
