If your pet gets lost, with Tracer you can be sure it has the best chance of coming home! Microchipping is a trusted way amongst veterinary professionals to identify an animal and used to re-unite lost pets with their owners quickly and efficiently.
Each Tracer microchip is slightly larger than a grain of rice. It is contained within a polymer coating. it sits safely and comfortably under your pets skin.
Implanting a Tracer microchip is a straightforward procedure, just like an injection. The qualified staff will locate the microchip in a standard position on your pet using a preloaded sterile implanter. In dogs and cats this will be under the loose skin of the neck.
Each Tracer microchip has a unique code that is linked to a national database. The database contains all your pets details such as your name, address and phone number. if your pet is found away from home, vets, animal charities and local authorities mostly have scanners to the read the the chip and retrieve the details. Your pet can then be returned to you safe and sound.
Dogs, cats and rabbits are the most commonly microchipped animals, but many others can also benefit from the microchipping. Birds, horses, reptiles such as snakes and tortoises, fish and almost any small mammal can be microchipped.
900 pets go missing every day in the UK. Don’t let your pet be one of them. The Tracer Advance microchip and database package helps to keep track of your pet so, if it does go walk about, you’ll have the best possible chance of being reunited. Its not just a microchip – Tracer is a comprehensive service dedicated to keeping you and your pet together.
