你的狗伴侣是忠诚的, 有爱心且无可替代的朋友, one that may have an urge to wander and explore and runs the risk of getting lost. Unfortunately, it is all too common for dogs to lose their way back home and end up in a shelter. 人们很容易认为这不会发生, but the reality is that a staggering number of dogs are lost in the shelter system each year because they lack reliable means for identification once they are found. 在著名动物医院, 靠谱的菠菜平台觉得狗是家庭的一部分, 你的和靠谱的菠菜平台的, and that is why we recommend every dog receives an identification microchip.
Traditional dog ID tags that hang from a collar are a common sense line of defense, 然而，狗的身份标签很容易与你的狗分开. In cases of dog theft, a dog ID tag is the first thing a thief will discard. 然而, a microchip for dogs is a permanent solution that ensures your dog can be properly identified by a 兽医 或者动物收容所，然后和你团聚.
A dog microchip comes preloaded in a sterile applicator and is injected under the loose skin between the shoulder blades. 虽然没有一个普遍认可的地点, a dog microchip is usually implanted between the shoulder blades. At approximately 12mm long, it is about the same size as a grain of rice. 由专业兽医进行, implanting a dog microchip takes a few seconds and is relatively painless. 一旦微芯片被植入皮肤下, 它会伴随你的狗一生.
It is important to understand that a dog microchip is not a GPS device providing real time tracking capabilities. Rather, a dog microchip is a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) device. 不像GPS设备, 狗用微芯片不需要电力, and it is easily identified by an animal shelter or 兽医 waving an RFID scanner across a dog's body w在这里 the microchip is embedded. The scanner simply identifies the company who made the chip and provides an account number. 一旦兽医有了这些信息, 他们会联系ID公司, provide the account number and then the company will contact you based on the information they have on file. Your information is never directly released to the 兽医 or to anyone else.
This brings us to an incredibly important part of dog microchipping: Registration! An RFID chip itself is useless if your registration isn't submitted and then kept current. Don't hesitate to ask your 兽医 any questions about the registration process, in order to ensure your dog can be accurately identified by it's pet microchip. If you move, please make sure to update your registration information
Dog ID tags are the first line of defense in locating and identifying a lost animal. 然而, microchipping dogs is the second and in some ways more important line of defense for your dog. This is because microchipping dogs ensures that your pet's identification is never lost, 偷来的, 以任何方式移除或妥协.
据靠谱的菠菜平台所知, just about every animal shelter and 兽医 in the United States has the RFID devices to perform a pet microchip lookup. 然而, 有各种各样的狗芯片制造商, and because of this not all RFID scanners can detect every microchip for dogs. 因此, shelters and 兽医s may keep several different scanners on-hand to perform a pet microchip lookup on a dog.
Will My Personal Information Be Accessible Through The Dog Microchip?
狗狗的微芯片不能侵犯您的个人隐私. 当射频识别扫描仪接收到芯片时, the chip only provides an identification number that correlates to the chip's manufacturer. That number is called into the pet microchip lookup and recovery service, and you will be contacted by that service using the contact information on file. This is why it is essential to make sure your registration information is accurate.
用于狗的微芯片的疼痛程度与抽血差不多. The needle required for the injection causes a pinch during dog microchipping procedures. Because it is only a momentary injection, no local or general anesthetic is required.
因为它是快速和非侵入性的, dog microchip cost is very reasonable considering the life time benefits of finding a lost loved one.
微芯片狗被认为是非常安全的. As with any medical procedure, t在这里 is always a risk of side effects. 这些包括:
- Migration of the chip under the skin (rare and usually within an inch of initial location)
It is important to note that side effects have occurred in a very small portion of dogs and are minor. We recommend a dog microchip to every canine owner because any risks far outweigh the potential rewards.
It is important to note that 90% of microchipped pets will be returned to their families and homes (Noted from 首页 again microchip). At our veterinary clinic we have located the families of near 100% of lost pets that have a microhip and are brought to us for a scan.
