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

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 else will take care of payment.
