About the size of a grain of rice, a microchip is an electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder. It does not contain a battery—the microchip can only be activated when a special scanner is passed over the implantation area.

If you’ve registered your pet’s ID number and your contact information with Petdentity database, you can be contacted and your pet can be returned to you.
Microchip Implants can be used to update the medical record and pets and pet owner’s security and other important information.

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 and pet owners information that a City founds or Vet can be able to contact the rightful owner of the pet. 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.
