A microchip is a chip about the size of a grain of rice, which is placed underneath the skin of the pet. The microchip itself has to internal energy source, so it will last the life of your pet. It is read by passing a microchip scanner over the pets shoulder blades. The scanner emits a low radio frequency that provides the power necessary to transmit the microchips unique cat or dog ID code and positively identify the pet.
