Microchips for the professionals of the pet industry. Breeders, clinics and shelters
Can these microchips be read by any scanner?
Yes, These microchips are ISO compliant, meaning they can be read by any universal scanner across North America, Europe and Asia. The only scanners that couldn't read these microchips are non-universal scanners from individual brands.
How do your microchips help lost pets get home?
All our microchips are registered with AAHA Universal Pet Microchip Lookup (http://petmicrochiplookup.org/), as is standard for any vet or shelter. Anyone with a scanner can find the microchip number and look it up on the search register to find the contact details associated with it.
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.
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.
Does each microchip have an individual syringe?
Yes. Every microchip comes preloaded into its own sterile syringe.
