What Is a Microchip?
It is a tiny electronic cylinder that is inserted under the skin of your pet. It begins to emit radio waves once a scanner is passed over and activates it. Once scanned, the chip will automatically send its unique ID number to the scanner. This number can then be used to pull up your provided contact information.
How Is a Microchip Implanted?
Searching for a vet near me that can implant a microchip in your pet? At Riverview Veterinary Hospital, we use a needle to inject the small chip underneath your pet’s skin. It is minimally invasive, requires no anesthesia, and there is no downtime after the insertion. That said, we can also implant the microchip if your pet is already under anesthesia for a different procedure.
What Kind of Information Does a Microchip Store?
The chip itself only holds an ID number, no other personal or medical data. It does not function as a GPS tracker, rather if the chip is scanned, it provides your contact information so the rescuer can work to reunite you with your pet. It is the responsibility of the pet owner to ensure their accurate contact information is registered with the microchip’s manufacturer. If you’re on the hunt for a vet near me that offers microchipping services, Riverview Veterinary Hospital is here to call. Call us at (813) 677-3100 to learn more.
