The size of the HomeAgain microchip is one of its most significant features. About the size of a grain of rice (approximately 12mm), the microchip is so small it cannot be seen once it has been implanted. Thanks to this small size, the actual implantation of the microchip is quite easy. Your veterinarian simply injects it beneath the surface of the skin between the shoulder blades, like a routine shot. The process takes only a few seconds, is virtually painless, and requires no special treatment or anesthetic.
Finally, and most importantly, the HomeAgain microchip has no batteries or internal energy source so it will last the life of your pet. After implantation, the microchip remains inactive until it is read with a scanner - the low radio frequency emitted by the scanner provides the microchip with the power necessary to transmit its unique code and positively identify the animal. Thus, the microchip itself has no internal power and will be able to transmit the ID code for the life of the animal.
