A Microchip; It is an electronic system developed for the identification of owned cats, dogs and ferrets and aids in the finding of lost or stolen animals.
- Microchip application can be done at any time that the veterinarian deems appropriate after our little four (and sometimes two) legged friends are over 8 weeks old.
- The rice grain-sized chip placed under the skin is scanned by the veterinarian with a reader device, allowing your contact information to be accessed. The biggest misconception for microchips is the idea that they can be tracked. A microchip is not a GPS-like tracking system.
- There is no need to apply any sedation or anesthesia to our companions while microchip is inserted. It is placed under the skin with the help of a special injector. Since this application is similar to the vaccination application, our little friend will feel the same amount of pain as the vaccination application.
- Microchip, Pet Passport and owner information are recorded in the database after the application.
- Microchip application is a great chance for our little friend to be safe and home!
When your lost friend is brought to any veterinary clinic, hospital or municipality veterinary health center, the owner information is accessed by scanning the ID number with a microchip reader. This application is the best tool to help you and your companion stay together.
