1 in 3 pets goes missing during its lifetime, and without proper ID, 90% never return home. A microchip for dogs & cats gives the best protection with permanent ID that can never be removed or become impossible to read.

Dog and cat microchipping is a simple procedure. A veterinarian simply injects a microchip for pets, about the size of a grain of rice (12mm), beneath the surface of your pet's skin between the shoulder blades. The process is similar to a routine inoculation, takes only a few seconds, and your pet will not react any more than he would to a vaccination. No anaesthetic is required.

An Identipet microchip is permanent pet ID. The microchip itself has no internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner over the pet's shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchip's unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet.

Identipet is the only microchip that has the Bio-Bond patented anti-migration feature to help ensure that the microchip will stay in place so that it may be easily located and scanned. If your pet gets lost and is taken to an animal shelter or vet, they will scan the microchip to read its unique ID code. This is the number used by Identipet to identify the pet and retrieve your contact information, which is used to contact you and reunite you with your pet.

Identipet microchips are the ONLY microchip used and endorsed by the National Council of SPCAs.
