How to microchip my pet?

Microchipping your pet is a simple yet crucial step in ensuring their safety and security. If you have decided to have your furry friend microchipped but are unsure of what to expect, you are in the right place.

Step 1: Choose a Qualified Veterinarian

The first and foremost step in microchipping your pet is to find a qualified veterinarian or a reputable pet professional who is authorised to perform the procedure. Once you register with Pet Aadhaar®, we will ship you a free ISO certified Microchip. You can also get this at one of our partner veterinary clinics in Pune.

Step 2: Prepare Your Pet

Before the appointment, ensure that your pet is calm and well-behaved. If your pet tends to get anxious or aggressive at the vets office, consult with the veterinarian for tips on how to keep them relaxed during the procedure. Most pets tolerate microchipping with minimal discomfort.

Step 3: Implantation


The microchipping procedure itself is relatively quick and straightforward. The veterinarian or pet professional will use a specialized syringe-like device to inject the microchip under the loose skin between your pets shoulder blades. The process is nearly painless, and anesthesia is not required.

Step 4: Register the Microchip with Pet Aadhaar®

Once implanted, the veterinarian will sign the microchip certificate. To complete registration, upload the certificate in your pets profile. This will ensure your pets microchip is active and will be helpful to reunite in case your pet gets lost.

Step 5: Connect your Pet Aadhaar Tag

Once you have completed the registration, you can now link the Pet Aadhaar® QR Tag to your pets profile. This additional measure can make it easier for someone to contact you if they find your pet.

Microchipping your pet is a responsible and loving way to protect your furry family member. It provides peace of mind, knowing that your pet has a permanent form of identification that can help reunite you if they ever become lost. By following these simple steps and choosing a qualified professional, you can ensure your pets safety and enjoy the lasting bond you share.
