About the service

The microchip is a device the size of a grain of rice that is implanted in the back of the neck using an needle. This is also a requirement for entry into almost all countries for your pet and serves as its identification number. There are two types of microchips: a 10-digit one and a 15-digit one. At PETWINGS, we only use 15-digit microchips, also known as ISO chips. These are the only ones that can be universally read and work with almost any type of scanner. While the needle used to insert the microchip is slightly larger than a routine vaccination needle, with a bit of ice on the area to be implanted, the process becomes almost painless and extremely fast.
