The Avid Microchip
The AVID microchip is a tiny computer chip which has an identification number programmed into it. The chip is encased in a smooth, strong biocompatible glass, and is small enough to fit into a hypodermic needle. Once an animal is injected with the chip, this one-of-a-kind number can identify it throughout its life. Its identification cannot be lost, altered or intentionally removed.
How Does The Microchip Work?
The microchip is generally injected deeply under the skin. It sits safely there, totally inert. A special scanner is used to send a radio signal through the skin of the animal to read the chip. The animal feels nothing as the scanner is passed over him. The microchip sends it's number back to the scanner. It appears in the viewing window as, for example, AVID 220*609*321.
How Does The Scanner Work?
The AVID® scanner sends a safe radio wave signal to the microchip. When the chip receives this signal, it sends data (the microchip number) back to the scanner to be displayed in a viewing window. AVID® scanners emit helpful audible beeps, display descriptions of actions in progress, and have a low battery message. Small, hand-held scanners are held close to the implant site while scanning. They have a reading range of about 3 inches. Larger, more powerful scanners can be used for various commercial and research applications. Read ranges vary from 6 to 20 inches depending upon specifications.
Does The Procedure Hurt The Animal?
Although the microchip needle is larger than a typical vaccine needle, the general rule is this; your animals will react the same way to this shot as they do to any other. No better, no worse. Animals do not over react to it. Their physical performance is not impaired and there is no scarring. You are not injecting any substance that can burn or irritate; the chip is completely biocompatible and non-offensive.
How Does The Animal Shelter Know To Call AVID®?
Animal shelters and animal control officers have been educated and informed about microchip identification and how it works. Shelters use industry wide, cross-compatible scanners that read all chips operating at a certain frequency. Once a microchip is located in an animal, the appropriate steps are taken. If the animal is registered with AVID's PetTrac Recovery System, the shelter will be given the owner's name. If the animal is not registered, they will be given the name of the veterinarian or the breeder who injected the microchip.
How Early Can My Dog Be Injected With An Avid Microchip?
Most breeders inject the chip between the ages of five and eight weeks of age. Of course, the injection can also be done at any time after that.
What Are Dog Owners Saying About The Avid Microchip?
"At Hightest Retrievers, we microchip all our puppies and the dogs we own. I like the fact that this satisfies the AKC for positive identification of all breeding dogs, and for OFA and CERF registration. We have already had one puppy returned to its owner because of the AVID® microchip. I feel AVID ® chips give us a professional edge as a breeder." Debra Folsum® microchips! It's easier to scan the dogs in my kennel than to wrestle with them to read a tattoo. I know my dogs, but if something were to happen to me, it would now be easy for others to identify them. I chip all the puppies that I sell too. I think it's cost effective, and cheap insurance!" Deb Dierking
