All pup­pies of Austra­lian Labra­do­odles (before they leave us) are equ­ip­ped with micro­chips and euro­pean pas­sports. This is a very secure way of iden­ti­fy­ing the animal.

The micro­chip is a pas­sive device that requ­ires radio waves in order to be acti­va­ted. These waves are gene­ra­ted by the spe­cial reader.

It con­si­sts of an inte­gra­ted cir­cuit pro­gram­med into fifteen digit num­ber. This sys­tem measu­res appro­xi­ma­tely 9mm x 1.5 mm and is immer­sed in a glass cap­sule. When you look at it it looks like grain of rice (measu­ring appro­xi­ma­tely 12mm x 2.1 mm).

This uni­que (in terms of code) iden­ti­fi­ca­tion, does not lose its value over the years, and does not fade like tattoos.

Leashes, fen­ces, clo­sed doors, may at first glance seem a suf­fi­cient pro­tec­tion aga­inst pet disap­pe­aring, but acci­dents hap­pen. It is true that there is no guaran­tee that this method of iden­ti­fi­ca­tion will work in one hun­dred per­cent of the cases, altho­ugh the micro­chip tech­no­logy gre­atly incre­ases our chan­ces for return of our lost pet.
