A microchip is a tiny microchip, about the size of a grain of rice, designed to be injected under the skin of an animal. Each chip carries a unique identification code which can be scanned using a small handheld device.

Vets, dog wardens, rescue charities and other organisations dealing with lost pets are equipped with these scanners. At implantation (a straightforward injection) owner’s details and microchip code are registered for life at a central database.

When a chip is scanned in a lost pet, the owner’s details can easily be found. Cats are regularly microchipped, however nearly any species have a chip implanted.

Please see Microchipping section in Kitten Healthcare for further detailed information.
