How long do the microchips last?

uPet microchips last the lifetime of your pet, once inserted.

They will not move or migrate as each chip features an anti-migration coating to prevent it from moving under the skin.

⚠️ Each microchip has a use-by date, after which we cannot guarantee the syringe is sterile. You should insert the microchip before this date usually 5 years
ℹ️ We use EO gas to sterilize the needles for at least 5 years.
