Pethealth Inc. announced the roll out of an ISO-standard MiniChip for use with companion animal RFID applications.
Approximately one-third the size of a standard microchip – which itself is roughly the size of a grain of rice – the MiniChip is designed to offer a smaller-scale alternative without compromising any of the protective benefits.
In addition, the injection needle used for the MiniChip is 60% smaller than standard injection needles which make it ideal for microchip technology in cats, kittens, and small breed dogs. Each MiniChip also includes free registration to the 24PetWatch Lost Pet Recovery database and a year of complimentary maintenance services.
The MiniChip is being featured at the 2012 North American Veterinary Conference this January 14 to 18 in Orlando, Florida where attendees will have an opportunity to test scan the MiniChip against the standard 24PetWatch microchip.
