What is an RFID pet chip?

In November last year, tens of thousands of people took refuge in the California fire. Many people separated from their pets in a panic. Fortunately, after the disaster, with the help of animal organizations and good people, many pets were reunited with their owners. In December of the same year, a pet cat in Shizuoka, Japan, was found in Nagoya, about 170 kilometers away, and returned to the owner.

There is one small thing that can help you get your pet back, which is the chip on the pet. The pet chip records the owner's information and contact information. Once the pet is sent to the hospital or the shelter, the staff can scan the chip to read the information and contact the owner to claim their pet.

The chip also records the pet's physical condition and medical history. When visiting the veterinarian, the doctor does not need to ask more, just scan it, and you can quickly retrieve the pet's medical history and quickly understand its various aspects. Today, pet medical insurance is on the rise. Compared with photo or video authentication, chips can better prove that "it" is "it."

In fact, the role of chips is not only to help pets return to their owners. The abandonment of pets in foreign countries has even been incorporated into the law. After being abandoned, dogs with chips can find their owners and investigate them, so that they can reduce dogs. Abandoned dogs happen, reducing the number of stray pets. And if a dog bites a person, the owner needs to take care of the unfavorable care and compensate the victim. This is a kind of protection for people who are bitten by pet dogs.

What is a pet chip?

The technology of pet chip is not complicated, this kind of technology is called RFID (abbreviation of Radio Frequency Identification), namely radio frequency identification, commonly known as electronic tag. This technology is widely used in various occasions, such as logistics, luggage handling, access control, etc. will use RFID. Its advantage is that the chip itself does not need a battery, can be made small, low in cost, and can also be used on high-speed moving objects.

The identification chip generates an induced current by the signal from the scanner. With this energy, the information stored in the chip is sent out and received and recognized by the scanner. This is why the identification chip does not use a battery.

There are also products that can be used with pet chips, such as the cat-specific door shown below. This kind of door comes with a chip scanner. After registering the love cat, you can ensure that only your own cat can enter and leave the house, and keep wild cats out.

Pet chips have become very popular in some overseas countries:

* The laws of the United Kingdom, Israel and New Zealand require dogs to have chips; Australia requires cats and dogs to have microchips by the age of 12 weeks;

* Although not required by law, everyone generally implants chips in their pets;

* Japan and the European Union require pets to be implanted with chips;

* China's customs department also requires that pets must have a chip or other valid identity certificate to enter the country.

Will pet chips cause harm to animals?

The pet chip has a small size (the size of rice grains) and is covered with a biological coating on the outside. After implantation, the pet chip can help the "grow" of the pet chip under the skin, and the pet body will not have any rejection, and it will not affect the appearance.

The pet chip has a globally unique ID number, which is the most advanced management method for pet management in the world. After the chip is implanted, the pet has a unique identity. By reading the device, the information of the owner can be determined. Once implanted and used for life (but it is best to check it once a year), it can be said to be "forever and once."

This rice-sized chip is highly resistant to pressure, and will not crack even if dropped directly from the ground at a height of 2 meters. It is safer under the protection of skin and dog hair; in terms of service life. The chip can work continuously for 18-20 years.
