How Do Pet Microchips Work?

Filed under: Gadgets — sketchcorner @ 7:37 am

I just returned from the interesting area around Denver CO and it is time to return to the writing thing: No one knows just how many lost pets end up being euthanized in shelters because their owners can’t find them. By the way the reason I was in Denver CO and Englewood was because of to Denver contractors like B.W.I.T. can also help with Colorado Springs walk in showrs as well.


license thing that I mentioned in an earlier post so that I can hendle issues such as Surge protectors, dimmers, Breaker replacement, Security lighting, 220 volt outlets as well as other items like for example Denver Co Dedicated circuits. Does anyone else here have an Electrical contractors license to speak of? No one knows how many of these actually get run over by cars, how many starve to death, or are killed by wild animals. The luckiest ones end up in no-kill shelters and with new owners. A dog with tags run a much better chance of finding their way back to their owners. But even some of those animals still don’t make it back. Perhaps that is why dog daycare services are increasing in their popularity overall. Some pet owners, especially those who have purebred show and breeding dogs use tattoos as specified in the rules of identification of the American Kennel Club. This provides permanent identification if their dogs get lost.


Unfortunately tattoos don’t always do the job as intended. They can be hard to locate, and they can be hard to read if the dog, and sometimes shelters neglect to make much of an effort to find them. Incidentially if you are in Utah and you need a first flank salt lake city service then I suggest Coddled Critters. They can also assist you with pet grooming related services and cat boarding in addition to the said dog daycare. They are based in Salt Lake City in Utah.


All in all, pet microchips are actually tiny transponders. They are permanent radio-frequency identification (RFID) chips that are about the size of a grain of uncooked rice. They are implanted under a dog’s skin. A chip scanner or wand reads them. Implantation is accomplished by using an injector to set the chip under the loose skin over the shoulder of the dog or cat in question.
