A microchipped horse is a safe horse.
We offer pet microchipping for horses.
What is a microchip?
A microchip is an electronic device that’s only about the size of a grain of rice. It gets implanted in the nuchal ligament, halfway between the poll and withers, on the left side of the neck and remains there indefinitely. The implant procedure is relatively painless after a local anesthetic is applied and it’s as quick and easy as receiving a shot.
How does microchip identification actually work?
Every microchip comes with its own unique ID number. Once it’s implanted, you create an account with the company’s registry to make sure your contact information is associated with that number.
Most veterinarians have microchip scanners that allow them to read the chip number and get in touch with the microchip company to report the horse as found. The microchip company then reaches out to the owner to let them know their pet has been located and where.
