Today increasingly popular in veterinary clinics is gaining option — chipping Pets. But, unfortunately, not all owners of four-legged know about the chipping of animals and also what it is and why it is necessary. In our article we will try as much to tell about the chip and its implementation.
Chip — what’s that?
Every chip has a unique identification code that is individual for each animal. It should be noted that this combination of numbers is permissible only after 10 years. If you purchased the original chip, then a match can not be.
The chip, implanted under the skin of the animal, so small that I can barely feel it after the procedure implementation. However, scanning with the help of special equipment allows to identify the chip, and displays the same identification code that is assigned to the chip.
Determine an identification (serial) number can be compared with the serial number of the passport of the person. Data from all chips are stored in a special database. It is quite possible that soon the bill will be passed that will compel every owner of their four-legged Pets chipped. It should be noted that in EU countries it is prohibited to import animals without microchip is because they are not included in the overall framework.
Which requires the chipping of Pets? The function of this chip one to register the animal in a common database, which holds all the information not only on the pet but also its owner. For example, imagine a situation in which your pet was lost. What will you do? Well, if the animal has a collar for the address. Otherwise where to start looking? It’s like a needle in a haystack, and the chip is rescue and hope to return the pet home.
The person who found the pet can take it to any veterinary clinic, where his scan (the procedure is absolutely painless and safe for the health of the animal). The display shows the serial number consisting of 15 digits, which, after injected into a single database, which is common to the entire world. As a result, will be found information about the owner of the lost ones and the address where the pet will be returned.
Chipping of domestic cats and dogs — a real salvation for the owners of purebred dogs. After all, you see that the risk and the likelihood that the animal can appropriate or steal is very high, but the implantation of microchips under the skin will prove that your pet. And if the lost will be found by the employees of the control services, by identifying the serial numbers of pet will be returned to the family. Otherwise, the animal will be very lucky if he will live only a week.
Chipping pet dogs
The algorithm chipping of dogs:
- First of all, the veterinarian pulls out a package where the new chip. It must scan. It is necessary that the serial number on the package and displayed on the display correspond.
- The chip before the introduction of the necessary prosterilizovat. Since the chip is protected by a special glass, not to worry that under the influence of alcohol will damage the chip.
- Veterinary doctor with a syringe injects the chip under the skin. Location for injection alone. The area of the withers or shoulder blades! It is strictly forbidden to use the neck or thigh. After completing the manipulation, scanned the place where was introduced the contents of the syringe. If the whole procedure was carried out correctly, the serial number consisting of 15 digits, must immediately appear on the display.
- In the end, the doctor fills in all the necessary documents, make you and your pet in a single database. In the veterinary passport of the pet be sure to make a note where is written the serial identification code.

But otherwise, even if you are not going to leave your pet out of the country and he’s a non-pedigreed, that’s no reason to neglect chipping your pet. Take into account that your dog or cat can run away, get lost. Then any finder who applied to the clinic with a request to scan an animal, can give you back the lost.
If your pet was stolen and you saw it in another family, you will be able to easily prove that it is your animal because you hold a passport for the animal and all necessary certificates confirming your direct relationship to the missing person. This iron argument, which in any processes to challenge, no one can. Animal rightfully should get back to you. Even if, unfortunately, you don’t know where your pet is, you can send all the veterinary hospitals of the city data on it, and the request about scanning all these Pets. Sooner or later, the kidnappers will have to go to a veterinary clinic for help.
