This is our short guide for Chipmypet customers to help you better understand the microchip process.  After reading if you have any questions, please get in touch via our social media.

You will need to read this guide before your appointment and may want to refer back to it later.  

Before booking

  • Chipmypet only microchip whole litters, still with the breeder and under 8 weeks old.

  • We recommend arranging your appointment as soon as possible, as we tend to get fully booked  in advance.

  • Chipmypet recommend microchipping your litter around 6 weeks old.

  • Your litter must not already have microchips and must be in a good and healthy condition.


  • No payments are taken until your appointment.

  • Payment is made directly to your implanter at the appointment, before implantation begins.

  • Payment can be made in cash only, please have the correct amount ready as our implanters do not carry change.

At your appointment

  • Your appointment should take less than 5 minutes per pup, although the implant itself will only take a few seconds.

  • Any animals not being microchipped will need be secure in another room.

  • Our implanters will need to stand while carrying out the procedure on your pups, so you'll need a table or kitchen worktop the pup can be placed on for the procedure.

  • The procedure is very simple and similar to an injection.  The pups will feel a small discomfort and may yelp, however they will have forgotten about it a few seconds later.

  • You will be required to hold the pup's head and body still, don't worry it's easy our implanters will show you how.  

  • If you feel you cannot do this please make sure another responsible adult (aged 18+) is at the appointment.

After your appointment

  • After implantation, you will not notice generally any difference in your pups.

  • Your pups need to take it easy for the first 48 hours after the appointment, some aftercare is required:

    • Do not wash or bathe your pups.

    • Do not use flea treatments, collars, etc.

    • Do not put your pup in clothes or harnesses.

    • Do not stroke or rub the implant area.

    • Do not squeeze the implant area.

    • Do not try to remove the microchip.

Telling your pups apart

  • Each pup will have a unique microchip number.

  • Chipmypet will give you a smart microchip scanner to keep.

  • Your smart microchip scanner will connect with your smart phone.

  • You will be able to scan the pups to tell them apart, even if they are identical and don't have collars on. 

  • For detailed information about the petscanner please click here.


  • The pups cannot be vaccinated on the same day or before your microchip appointment. 

  • Due to the nature of vaccinations, they must be done by a vet in a vet surgery and cannot be done in your home.

  • Your implanter will take care of this for you.
