How big is a Tracer® Advance microchip?

Each Tracer Advance microchip is slightly larger than a piece of long grain rice.

It sits safe and comfortably under your pet’s skin, and is coded with a unique number that can be read by a scanner when passed over the microchip.

How does a microchip work?

The microchip is implanted by a veterinary professional. It is a quick and simple process, similar to the feeling of having an annual vaccination.

Your veterinary practice will record all of your details with Petlog via a paper registration form or online. The database contains all of your details such as your name, address and phone number. If your pet is found away from home, most vets, animal charities and local authorities will have a scanner to read the microchip and Petlog can retrieve your pet’s details. Your pet can then be returned to you safe and sound.
