When this microchip is scanned by a veterinarian or shelter, it gives the ID number. There’s no power required, no battery, and no moving parts. This microchip is inserted beneath the loosened skin between the dog’s shoulder blades and this process can be carried out inside your vet’s office. It can work as a great medium in searching for your lost pet.
