What Is Pet Microchip and Why is it Needed

To transfer your pet internationally (export and import), you need to buy a pet microchip. A microchip is the only proof of identification that your pet has while traveling. It is necessary to get your pet microchipped because if your pet gets lost, you won’t be able to find them without a microchip. The 15-digit, non-encrypted, ISO 11784/11785 microchip is considered the standard chip worldwide and must be implanted in your pet before any form of travel. Quarantine officials of a country must verify your pet according to the veterinary document presented by you, so if your pet has a nine or ten-digit microchip, you need to purchase a 15-digit microchip for your pet to clear customs and pass the verification procedure before being allowed entry in a country.

How is a Pet Microchip Implanted

Pet microchips are implanted through a veterinarian with the help of a quick injection, just like a routine vaccination.

  1. The implantation of microchips varies from animal to animal. Dogs and cats receive the injection along the dorsal midline which is just between the blades of the shoulder. Horses receive the injection along the left side of the neck, an inch below the mane and midway between the poll and withers. Birds receive the implant in their breast muscles as they lack bulk.

  2. Existing microchips need to be scanned before implanting a new one. The process takes 10 to 30 seconds.

  3. There is no requirement for an anesthetic. The implantation procedure is swift.

  4. The skin of your pet is desensitized through a simple pinch that pulls the skin upwards until taut. The needle is inserted by the professional.

  5. Putting in the final pinch, make sure that the microchip stays in place as the needle is withdrawn.

  6. The microchip registration forms can be completed with the help of the veterinarian or animal shelter personnel.

  7. After the process, it is important to avoid rigorous exercise or activity with your pet for 24 hours for the anti-migration coating on the microchip to bond to your pet’s skin.
