A microchip is a small, electronic chip enclosed in a glass cylinder that is about the same size as a grain of rice. The microchip itself does not have a battery—it is activated by a scanner that is passed over the area, and the radiowaves put out by the scanner activate the chip. The chip transmits the identification number to the scanner, which displays the number on the screen. The microchip itself is also called a transponder.
"Thank you Dr. Kim for taking care of my cat who was brought to you via county animal services. She was hurt and not very cooperative but yet you handled her with care. You made sure she was safe until her owner was found (me)! I am truly grateful for all that you did."
"Wonderful people, and great service for are furry family."
