Frequently asked questions

Pet microchips are the size of a rice grain relying on radio frequency identification (RFID) technology. They chip transmits a unique number over radio waves that helps identify your pet.

Microchips do not have battery nor do they require any energy source. They just lie idle until they are scanned.

Microchipping your pet is a simple process. You can either take the chip in the sterile packaging to your regular veterinarian or head over to one of our partner vets. The vet will insert the chip and sign the certificate.

It only takes a few minutes to microchip your pet.

The microchip is inserted on the midline between the shoulder blades

Microchip does not cause a reaction in a pet in normal circumstances. However, when inserting a foreign body, there is always a possibility of a reaction and associated medical complications. The possible reactions include migration, inflammation, infection, abscess formation and tumour formation. Such complications are extremely rare. In fact the British Small Animal Veterinary Associations Microchip Advisory Group noted that in the 40 lakh microchips that were inserted, only 0.009% were associated with any adverse reaction.

Microchipping your pet should not cause any more discomfort than your pet while getting vaccinated. Some pets, if they are already in pain or sensitive in their skin, might feel slightly more discomfort during the process. We advice to talk to your vet before microchipping your pet.

Your pet doesnt need to be put under anaesthesia to be microchipped. They can be awake during the process.

It is highly unlikely that the microchip wont be read by the scanner. Before inserting the chip, scan the microchips from outside the sterile package to ensure it is working. In the rare event that it is not, reach out to us on support@petaadhaar.com and we issue you a new one.

In rare circumstances, microchips can migrate inside the pets body. The chip tends to stay close to the insertion area when implanted by a trained veterinarian.

Microchips is not a GPS device and cannot be used to track your pets movement. A microchip only shares information which can be used to identify the lost pet.

A microchip can stay inside your pets body for the entirety of their life. The sterile packaging of the microchip comes with an expiration date. If the pet is chipped before the date, the chip will remain sterile and safe within the pets body.
