Microchips are tiny electronic devices about the size of a grain of rice that use radio waves to transmit identification information. Pet microchips store unique identification numbers that show once the chip is scanned. This number can be reported to the appropriate microchip company, storing the owners’ contact information. Microchips are made of a material that is compatible with body tissues, so rejection and infection at the site of microchip injection are rare.
