Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How early can I microchip my puppies?

A: Most veterinary practices & dog breeders microchip puppies between the ages of 5-8 weeks, the procedure can also be done anytime after that. The same rules apply to Kittens, Birds, Fish and other animals.

Q: What about the smaller breeds of animals can I microchip them with the same standard sized microchip?

A: No. For all toy breeds, birds, fish and other small animals it is recommended that you implant them with a mini microchip, which has been specially designed for the ease of implanting smaller animals for both the implanter & the animal.

Our Mini Microchip is 44% smaller that our standard microchip.

Q: Will a microchip tell me my pet's location?

A: Pet microchips are not tracking devices and do not work like global positioning devices (GPS). They are radio-frequency identification (RFID) implants that provide permanent ID for your pet.

Because they use RFID technology, microchips do not require a power source like a GPS. When a microchip scanner is passed over the pet, the microchip gets enough power from the scanner to transmit the microchip's ID number. Since there's no battery and no moving parts, there's nothing to keep charged, wear out, or replace. The microchip will last your pet's lifetime.
