Electronic animal marking (chipping) makes it possible to identify them. Every microchip has a unique number, which means that it is possible to look up a registered animal's data and owner in the database it is registered in.

Microchips can be used with in animal species. However, it is important to choose the right place for the chip.

Microchip implantation is a surgical procedure and should be performed by a skilled veterinarian.

Chipping is the procedure of implanting an animal with a microchip.

A microchip is a transponder (integrated circuit) with a unique number permanently encoded on it. Several microchip standards are used for companion and farm animals, such as FDX-A, FDX-B, HDX and ID64. The number can be checked using a special...

A microchip does not have a tracking functionality and is not a GPS device. It is a passive device without a power source and does not emit a signal.

A microchip does not function as a GPS device and cannot be used to locate an animal as it does not emit a signal.

It is recommended that you choose a chip that is appropriate to the size of the animal. Cats, smaller animals and small dog breeds should be implanted with 1.4 x 8 mm mini-chips. Larger dog breeds and other large animals should be implanted with...

A microchip can be read for many years after implantation. A chip's life expectancy greatly exceeds that of the animal and does not require replacing.

In order to check if an animal has been microchipped, you need to use a special microchip reader. The chip is usually located near the left side of an animal's neck. Every veterinary clinic should have a microchip reader.

Tattooing used to be a popular form of animal marking. However, it has been steadily replaced by chipping. A tattoo is less durable (the code rubs off), it is difficult to identify the owner as the codes are not unique, and databases rarely keep a...
Microchip readers are used by public services, authorities dealing with animals, veterinary clinics and professionals, shelters and pro-animal foundations. Mandatory chipping and the popularisation of chips has resulted in many breeders also...

Chipping is similar to an injection. If done properly, it is not painful for the animal and does not require anaesthesia.

A microchip is a passive device, which is why it should not malfunction or stop working.

If you are certain that an animal has already been implanted with a microchip but are unable to find it, try using a different reader and checking other areas of the animal's body to see if the transponder has not moved. If you still cannot find the...

A microchip is usually implanted on the left side of an animal's neck. In certain countries, it is also common practice to implant it between the scapulae.

Registration in a database is necessary to identify animals and their owners. A microchip implanted in an animal cannot be used to find the animal's owner. To do so, it is necessary to assign owner data to the chip. Without registration, a...

You can register all animal species in WORLDPETNET. It all depends on what species can be registered in your country's database.

A marked animal must be registered by its owner. Some veterinarians and breeders do it themselves, but it is ultimately the responsibility of the owner to determine whether an animal has been registered and to do so if it has not.

Whether it is mandatory to register marked animals depends on your country's laws. However, a responsible owner should register their pet regardless of whether it is mandatory or not. Registering microchips helps combat animal homelessness.

A breeder is a member of a legal organisation which rears and breeds purebred animals in accordance with the rules of that organisation.

Electronic marking can be used for nearly all animal species – mammals, birds, fish and reptiles. It is important to choose the correct chip size for the animal.

A purebred dog or cat has a documented pedigree.

Warum macht es Sinn,
ein Tier zu registrieren?

Die elektronische Kennzeichnung von Tieren mithilfe eines Mikrochips ist die dauerhafteste, effektivste und absolut sichere Methode zur schnellen und zuverlässigen Identifizierung. Nur dank der eindeutigen Transpondernummer (Chipnummer) ist es möglich, den Besitzer sofort zu identifizieren und ausfindig zu machen und somit das Tier nach Hause zurückzubringen. Es gilt jedoch zu beachten, dass der Mikrochip selbst nur ein Transponder ist, in dem eine Nummer codiert wurde. Der Mikrochip erfüllt weder eine Verfolgungsfunktion noch beinhaltet er Angaben zum Besitzer bzw. zum Tier! Damit die Identifizierung eines gekennzeichneten Hundes oder einer Katze möglich ist, muss der Mikrochip in einer nationalen Datenbank gekennzeichneter Tiere registrie...
