Microchips are tiny devices implanted under the skin of a pet so if you lose your cat or dog, a veterinarian can read the information embedded in the microchip and reunite you with your pet again. However, you may be wondering how microchips work at all.

Basically after microchipping your pet, you need to store information inside that microchip. The microchip doesn’t require power since it passively stores information rather than broadcasting a signal constantly like a mobile phone. So if you value your pet, be sure to microchip it and take the time to make sure your contact information gets stored inside that microchip as well. A simple microchip can insure you’ll never be without your pet again.
