UK Products


Identichip® is the UK's original pet microchipping service. 

Launched in 1989 we have over 25 years experience and our continues development means our products lead the way in pet microchips, identification and reunification services. 

Over 5 million animals have been microchipped with Identichip® and our dedicated team have helped reunite thousands of lost pets with their keepers.

Why chose Identichip?® 

  • Long double bevelled siliconised needles for sharpness, minimum trauma and quick healing.
  • Bio-Bond® anti-migration protection - a patented collar enabling tissue to anchor the microchip in place for reduced migration risk.
  • Manufactured to ISO standards for your assurance.
  • Effective “back track” system registers microchips to the practice when they are sold meaning pets can be traced back to the practice immediately after implantation.

Identichip® Ultra

The Mini Microchip with Big Benefits

Identichip® ultra combines all the benefits of a smaller microchip and a thinner needle with improved reading distances for the ultimate mini microchip solution.

Animal Welfare

The identichip® ultra needle is 50% thinner than a standard microchip needle. This size reduction combined with a sharp, siliconsied needle ensures increased comfort for the pet during the procedure.

The siliconisation allows the needle to penetrate the skin quickly and smoothly improving the experience for both the pet and the implanter.

Improved Read Range

Reducing the size of a microchip can lead to a significant reduction in the read range. In larger animals, this could ultimately lead to a microchip not being detected and a break in the reunification process.

Identichip® ultra combines a slimline needle with a longer ferrite rod (which boosts the signal to the scanner). This increases the reading distance compared to other mini microchips by up to 24%*.

The Complete Microchipping Solution

Mini microchips offer a fantastic solution for improved comfort and ease when microchipping small breeds and species. However, it is essential to use standard microchips in larger species and breeds to ensure the maximum read range is achieved.

We recommend that identichip® ultra is used with small breed dogs, cats, small furries (rabbits, ferrets, guinea pigs etc), birds and exotics.


All identichip® microchips are registered on identibase®, the only UK database offering owner online registration for immediate and more accurate data input. Identibase® holds the registered details of over 5 million microchipped pets and is available for reunification 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.


A microchip is the best identification you can give your pet, but it’s still traumatic if they go missing.

Identifind® is an enhanced reunification service for pets registered on identibase® and offers invaluable assistance from our dedicated team 24/7 365 days a year. Identifind® is exclusive to pets registered on identibase® premium.

As well as providing reassurance and advice we will contact local vets, rescue agencies and charities on your behalf so you can concentrate on following the advice given.


At Animalcare, we recommend Petplan® insurance – the UK’s No.1 pet insurer with over 40 years’ experience in keeping pets healthy and happy.

Pet insurance is an important part of responsible pet ownership. Looking after a pet is exciting and rewarding for both you and them. But pets, young and old, can fall ill at any time and then the cost of treatment can become expensive. Looking after an unwell pet is stressful enough without having to think about bills. Insurance gives you peace of mind, knowing someone can help take care of the payment.
