Choosing a Microchip Provider and a Microchip Registry are important decisions. The chip you purchase and install will be a lifelong identifier for the animal. It will need to perform on demand for the many situations animal and owner may face. Not just for loss or theft, but for regulatory, travel, legal situations, medical care and much more.
Since 1989 we have been a industry leader. Our Guide below is just what you need. An unbiased and straightforward Check List of what to look for and what to avoid.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) published a final rule in 2013 establishing regulations regarding the trackability of U.S. livestock moving interstate. The rule names specific methods of animal identification that are acceptable.
One of the permitted methods of identification is a 15 digit microchip that begins with the designated United States prefix 8-4-0 (ex. 840123456789012). Only USDA approved companies are granted permission to manufacture the official 840 microchip. Our microchips were submitted for testing and met all of the stringent requirements. Our microchip product, 840-ID, carries the official USDA 840 and comes in two needle sizes.
