What are microchips?

Microchips are a permanent form of unique identification implanted under your pets’ skin. They are the size of a grain of rice and are not harmful to your pet. They use radio frequencies that can be easily scanned using a microchip scanner.

Why does my pet need a microchip?

There are several reasons to microchip your pet. Most importantly is for easy identification. In the case that your pet gets lost, any veterinarian, animal shelter, or government veterinary service can scan your pet for a microchip. The contact details you provide when registering your pets microchip number will allow anyone who finds your pet to contact you.

Another reason to microchip your pet is that it is a requirement for pet import into almost every country. If you plan to travel internationally with your pet you will need to start the process of preparation with an internationally approved microchip.

How do I know if my pet has a microchip?

If you are unsure if your pet has a microchip you can contact your veterinarian. They should have it listed in their records and can scan your pet to confirm.

Where do I get a microchip?

Microchips are readily available at your local veterinary office. A veterinarian will implant the microchip directly under the skin of your pet.

How do I know what microchip is correct for my pet?

For international travel, your pet will be required to be microchipped with a subcutaneous 15 digit electronic chip that transmits on a frequency of 134.2 kilohertz and can be read with a chip reader that conforms to the provisions of the ISO 11784/11785. Many countries use this as a standard type of microchip but it is best to confirm this with your vet prior to implantation.

When do I need to implant the microchip?

Many countries now require the microchip to be implanted prior to any vaccinations that are relevant to travel. If you are planning to implant the microchip after your pets Rabies vaccination be sure to check your destination countries import regulations carefully.

How do I register my pets microchip number?

Registering your pets microchip number with your vet and local authorities is an important step in the microchipping process. This means that you provide your contact information to be updated in the database. When your pet’s microchip is scanned, your information will be available. Be sure that your vet has filled in your contact information correctly after microchipping. It is also important to register your pet’s microchip and contact information with local authorities when you arrive at your new destination.

In addition to regeristing your pets with your veterinarian and local authorities is an online free international microchip database for registering your pet’s microchip.

A very big thank you to Ahava and all the team for bringing our beloved fur family from Australia to Israel (2 cats and 2 dogs). It was a complex job given the mixed breeds of our rescue pups and the effects of covid on the options available in the pet transport industry. Ahava was so professional and patient and went beyond the call of duty to assist us. Her communication was prompt and informative. Her knowledge and professionalism were exceptional. We will definitely use them should we need to return to Oz. Thank you, Ahava!!!

The service on Terminal4Pets is highly recommended. I brought my dog from the UAE to Israel without any problems thanks to Ahava's help throughout the whole process and paperwork.

Amazing service from Ahava and the team. Moving a dog from Israel to the UK is particularly complicated (and my situation involved various delays and pauses) but they were happy to wait for as long as needed until we were ready to move. They got everything in order, they were always responsive (including at 11pm when I landed in Paris and had a question) and had great communication with my vet also. Highly recommend for the most stress free possible experience !

My experience with Terminal4Pets was unbelievably easy and efficient. I lived in Israel for a few years and had experienced many different approaches to business and customer service - mostly less that standard. T4P were amazingly responsive and treated my dog so very well. They worked with the kennel that he was staying at and got him to the US without ANY issues. When the airline gave them a challenge, T4P quickly approached me with reasonable options that helped me stay in control of my dog's itinerary and get him here quickly. I highly recommend them!
