Chip chipping is an excellent method of preventing the homelessness of animals, enabling quick identification of the owner of an animal in the event of a disappearance of an animal. The electronic chip with a unique encoded number is the size of a grain of rice, does not disturb the animal and does not cause allergic reactions. It is inserted subcutaneously in the neck or between the shoulder blades and may last several decades. A special reader can read the chip number and, after checking in the electronic database, obtain information about the owner. This makes it possible to notify him almost immediately about the finding of the quadruped.
Electronic tagging is necessary to travel with your pet in the European Union.
