Articles on: Microchips

Do I have to wait until the microchip is activated to be able to read it?

No. The microchips have an identification number that can be read immediately after they are inserted. Activation is critical because it links the owner’s contact details with the microchip number, so that anyone scanning in the future knows who to call if they find the pet.
