MICROCHIP REQUIREMENTS STANDARDS FOR YOUR PET/S

All EU countries as well as many other countries require that your pet have a microchip that meets ISO Standards 11784/11785. As of new regulations promulgated in 2006, the ISO microchip became the standard for all of Europe. In addition, more than 20 other countries also require that your pet carry a microchip that meets the ISO standards.

While market practice has been to implant microchips between the shoulder blades of the animals, studies show that to reduce the possibility of movement, implantation should be done as follows:

For dogs: subcutaneous on the left side of the neck, behind the ear, lateral of the fourth to the fifth cervical vertabra

For cats: subcutaneous on the left side of the neck, behind the ear, lateral of the fourth to the fifth cervical vertabra
