PET MICROCHIPS

Our premium 1.4mm x 8mm RFID animal microchips and 1.4mm x 10mm RFID animal microchips come ready to use. They are ergonomically designed and feature a disposable syringe, pre-loaded with an ISO compliant 8mm or 10mm microchip housed within a high precision medical grade sterile needle.

The microchips are manufactured to EU standards, with biocompatible glass which is coated in an anti-migration treatment that will help prevent movement of the microchip once it's been implanted in the animal. Each package is sterilized when sealed with an indicator to confirm that complete sterilization has been achieved.

Included with each microchip are barcode labels relating to the individual chip number, breeder registration cards and keeper registration cards which can be used for microchip registration and record keeping.

MICROCHIP REGISTRATION

Choosing the right database to register your pet microchips is very important. There are lots of options to choose from, but not all meet the standards we might expect, some unfortunately are not even approved by DEFRA or are legally compliant. Having researched the market extensively, we only recommend the Animal Tracker Microchip Database for pet microchip registration.

Not only do Animal Tracker operate a 24/7 365 day a year lost pet telephone line, they are also staffed by a fully trained and experienced team, who we feel really understand the needs of implanters, breeders and pet owners. Compared to other databases Animal Tracker are very competitively priced and registering your pet microchips with them is simple, their system makes it so easy to register just a single pet microchip or entire litter in a matter of minutes.

They offer lots of great features for implanters, breeders and pet owners. Click below to find out more about pet microchip registration.

FAQS

Q. Will you send me free microchips if I send you ones from my current supplier?

I’m afraid not, we are responsible suppliers and would not consider accepting microchips that we cannot fully trace and guarantee to be sterile and safe. Unfortunately we couldn't guarantee that the microchips sent to us would be safe for reuse for implanting or for any other purpose, therefore they would need to be disposed of. We care about our environment and discourage waste, disposing of perfectly usable pet microchips is unethical and should not be encouraged. Not to mention the risk they could pose to humans or animals if they ended up in a landfill. So please don’t send us your microchips, we would much rather you use your current chips and then order some from us when you’re ready, even if we do have to wait a little bit longer to have you as a valued customer!

Q. Do you offer free puppy packs when I order pet microchips from you?

We’ve certainly considered it, but nothing is free when you’re running a business. The cost of the items in the free puppy pack would still have to be paid for at some point along the chain, and inevitably these costs would either need to be added to the cost of our pet microchips. We're not comfortable with that and it simply isn't fair for those customers who don’t want or need a puppy pack. We would rather you buy your pet microchips from us and your puppy goodies from a responsible supplier, who specialises in quality products that aren’t so cheap that they can be given away for “free”.

Whether you're a breeder who wants to be able to microchip your own litters, or a trained implanter who wants to brush up their skills, through our training partner we are proud to be able to offer the highest standard of training available.

Our training partner has achieved the highest approval status by DEFRA and The Secretary of State, The Scottish Secretary of State and The Welsh Assembly to train in England, Scotland and Wales respectively.

Professional training courses will teach you to implant microchips through a theory test often taken online, followed by practical real-world training session which includes how to handle live animals correctly when microchipping. Our training partner has a nationwide network of microchip implanting trainers who offer flexible training dates dependant on your needs.

PET MICROCHIP INFORMATION

What are pet microchips?

A pet microchip is a permanent method of identification. The microchip itself is very small – about the size of a grain of rice – and is implanted subcutaneously (just under the skin) between the shoulder blades of the animal. Each microchip has a unique 15 digit number that is detected using a microchip scanner. The pet microchip itself has no moving parts nor emits any kind of radio wave and is passive until scanned.

Once implanted, the microchip number is recorded on an approved pet microchip database with details about the animal, the microchip implanter, the breeder and the owner (or keeper). Pet owners need to ensure their current contact details are always on the database against the pet microchip number. 

Should your pet become lost, vets, animal shelters and local councils can scan your pet microchip and using the unique number will contact the database where the details are held, who in turn will contact recorded the pet owner.

It is very important to keep your contact details up to date on the database so that if you move house or change your phone number you will still be contactable in the event of your pet becoming lost/straying. If a pet is transferred to a new owner, it is a legal requirement that the new owner ensures their contact details are updated on the pet microchip record in the database.

Why do pets need microchips?

It is very important to ensure your pet is microchipped because if they become lost, you are far more likely to be reunited. From the 6th April 2016, all dogs are required by law to be microchipped. The pet microchip needs to be linked to the owners current contact information to be compliant.

It is a legal requirement for all puppies over the age of 8 weeks to be microchipped in England, Scotland and Wales. All dog breeders are responsible for ensuring puppies are microchipped before selling them. Puppies cannot be sold until they are eight-weeks-old and must be microchipped at the point of sale for the new pet owners to then update their details on taking ownership.

To date it’s not a legal requirement to have other species microchipped however it is recommended you do especially with cats. It’s a really helpful reunification tool particularly if the animal unfortunately ends up at the vets.

Do I need to register my pets microchip?

All pet microchips should be registered at the point of implantation, this may be through a vets practice, via a trained implanter or at a rescue/ rehoming centre.

New pet owners must ensure they have updated the details via the database the microchips have originally been registered on as soon as they take ownership.

Puppies must be microchipped by their breeder before they are sold at 8 weeks but can be exempt should there be a health reason this wasn’t completed. These pets would always have an exemption certificate from the vet reasoning why this hasn’t been completed and must be microchipped as soon as health allows to be compliant.

Is my pet microchip registered?

When you first collect your pet it should have been microchipped, you will receive some paperwork detailing the microchip number and relevant database information. This will give you detailed instructions on how to update the owner information held for that pet microchip on the associated database.

You can transfer your pet microchip information from one database to another if you want to keep all your animals in one place. For example, the Animal Tracker Microchip Database will allow you to record 5 pets in your account for just £7.95 with unlimited address updates. This is a huge saving when considering that other databases charge more than this for a single animal, and in some cases charge again, per update.

If your new pet does not have a microchip, you can either contact your local vet or use a look up tool to find trained implanters in your local area who will be able to implant your pet and register it on an approved pet microchip database.

Animal Microchips and Pet Microchips

8mm AND 10mm PET MICROCHIPS

Our 8mm pet microchips and 10mm pet microchips are incredibly small but still offer an excellent read range when scanned. Thanks to modern manufacturing techniques our microchips are about the same size as a grain of rice. This makes microchip implanting a much easier and more comfortable procedure for both the implanter and especially smaller animals.
