Common Questions about Microchips
What types of microchips do you offer for Identification of my Puppy?
We carry Microchip ID ( domestic 10 digit USA standard) and
DataMars (International ISO 15 digit),
designed for the different needs of our customers.
Are your chips accepted by all kennel clubs and registries?
Yes. All of the microchips we implant are accepted by any kennel club,
registry or breed club that allows microchip numbers
to be used as permanent identification.
Some of these registries are...
American Kennel Club
America's Pet Registry, Inc.
Continental Kennel Club
United All Breed Registry
United Kennel Club
* We also provide microchips (International ISO 15 digit)
accepted by the Canadian Kennel Club
Which of your chips can be registered in Pet Recovery Services?
All chips we implant are universally accepted for registration into companion
animal recovery programs in the United States.
For Canadian Families the Microchip will be registered with an international registry.
These Pet Recovery Call Centers operate 24 hours a day and will reunite a lost pet with his owner if
the microchip has been activated by the owner.
Why should I microchip puppies that I buy?
One of every three pets will become lost in their lifetime.
Any puppy or kitten should be microchipped to protect it against loss,
theft or separation from its owner.
The chip must be activated by the new owner so that the pet will get home FAST, if lost.
In addition, microchips installed at the kennel level also protect the breeder,
simplify management and solve problems with confusion of puppies.
What do you mean by "The chip must be activated by the owner?"
It is essential that the owner of the pet activate the pet's chip
by registering with the appropriate 24 hour Recovery Center.
If the owner does not register - and the pet is lost -
the recovery center will not be able to reunite pet and owner.
Today millions of pets are microchipped, so a microchip
alone is no longer enough to insure a safe return.
However, if the owner has activated the chip by
providing contact information, the pet will be returned to his owner
Will the Breeder be contacted if my puppy/dog ends up in a shelter?
We cannot guarantee that the Breeder will be contacted if your puppy ends
up lost or in a shelter. Shelters today are inundated with microchipped pets,
and they often are unable to make a string of tracking calls.
However if the pet owner has activated the chip and provided the recovery
center with contact information, you the pet owner WILL be contacted.
Which microchip frequency (kHz) should I choose?
When implanting microchips, it is important to become familiar with
the different microchip frequencies used in the United States.
Microchips operate by radio frequency and are classified by kHz.
Such as 125 kHz ( 10 digit USA ),
128 kHz, 134 kHz ( International ISO 15 digit, the standard for Canada ).
Certain frequencies are more prominent than others and more widely read.
The most widely read frequency today in the USA is the 125 kHz.
Most professional USA kennels and retailers use this type of chip.
How do I activate the microchip?
If you are a pet owner, you must activate and register the microchip
so that it can do the job it is designed to do.
We will supply you with an Activation Card so you can register online.
How much does a microchip cost?
Microchips implanted in your puppy/dog are $50.00 for 10 or
15 digit + $22.00 for LIFETIME chip registration.
Please check with your vet and compare our prices -
we beat them 99% of the time!
How long does the microchip last?
The microchip has no power supply, battery, or moving parts.
It is designed with an operating life of
over 25 years and is guaranteed for the life of the animal.
Once injected, the microchip is anchored
in place as a thin layer of connective tissue forms around it.
The chip requires no care.
It does not pass through or out of the body.
How does a microchip system work?
A special scanner sends a harmless radio signal to the tiny microchip that
has been implanted under the skin of the pet.
Does the procedure hurt the animal?
Although the microchip needle is larger than a typical vaccine needle,
animals do not over react to it.
Anesthesia is not required or recommended.
What is the best age to inject the chip?
Most breeders inject the chip between the ages of five and eight weeks.
Of course, the injection can also be done at any time after that.
Where is the injection site in dogs?
Dogs and cats are injected between the shoulder blades with a deep subcutaneous
(under the skin) delivery of the chip.
