Having a microchip can be the difference between lost and found.

What is A Microchip?

  • It’s a rice sized, radio-frequency identification device (RFID) implanted just under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades
  • It’s not a GPS tracking device
  • Each chip has a unique ID number
  • Pet and owner information is registered to the unique ID number
  • Unlike a tag and collar, it cannot be removed or lost

Remember, having a microchip can be the difference between lost and found, but they work like any other form of identification, meaning the information tied to it has to be correct. While implanting your pet is the first step, ensuring all the registered information is accurate plays an incredibly crucial role in reuniting families. All your registration information is only a click away at mypethealth.com, so you can keep your furry family member safe and sound.
