Animal chipping is a modern and practical method of identifying domestic pets. In many European countries, this procedure is mandatory for anyone who wants to have a cat or dog. Animal microchipping takes only a few minutes, does not cause pain, and is safe for them. Many pet owners consider getting a pet chip as a reliable method to ensure the safety and identification of their beloved animals. Animal microchips have become a popular choice for pet IDs, offering a permanent and secure way to reunite lost friends with their owners. While considering getting it, it’s essential to factor in the associated costs, as the pet chip cost varies depending on the type of chip, and all the costs are listed on the Haabersti Loomakliinik clinic’s price list. 

What Microchipping is: Functions and Features

It involves the subcutaneous implantation of a special microchip—a small bio-capsule containing electronic information, namely a unique digital combination. The bio-capsule is introduced into their wither area using a specific instrument that visually resembles a syringe. This procedure is accompanied by the same sensations as a regular injection.

The data on it is read by a specific device. If the animal has a chip in the body, when the reader is brought close, the digital code is displayed on the screen. It is then identified through a database. This quick and efficient process helps reunite lost ones with their owners swiftly, providing peace of mind to owners. In case you’re unsure whether your cat or dog has a microchip, a local veterinarian will assist in checking and ensuring their safety.

Advantages of Microchipping

It solves several important tasks at once:

  • Makes it impossible to substitute beloved friends, which eliminates the transportation (including across borders) of individuals potentially infected with various diseases or stolen;
  • Facilitates the search for the owner in case of a lost friend;
  • Facilitates research work (in the case of chipping wild pets).

Only a veterinarian should perform this procedure. The digital code is recorded in the pet’s veterinary passport, including its ID.

Chipping has several advantages:

  • Painless (compared to branding);
  • No side effects;
  • Eliminates the risk of losing or damaging the chip.
