WHAT IS A MICROCHIP?
A tiny, glass, inert capsule the size of a grain of rice containing an identification number linking you to 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 IF 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. technoogy.
HOW LONG DOES THE REGISTRATION LAST?
Your pet is registered for life!
CAN ALL SCANNERS READ YOUR BRAND OF MICRO CHIP?
Pet detect uses the latest technology from Germany (FDX-B) and can be scanned ad nauseam by all ISO scanners. Perfect for pets who travel.
If you plan to travel abroad your pet must have a micro chip in order to comply with regulations.
