Proper Microchip Placement

Microchipping dogs & cats

According to American Veterinary Medical Association (AVMA) guidelines, microchip implantation in a dog or cat should be administered by subcutaneous injection on the dorsal midline, just cranial to the shoulder blade or scapula.1

HomeAgain® technology makes microchipping pets easier and safer.

  • HomeAgain helps make microchip implantation easier with a simple, one-piece syringe mechanism that allows for injection in one step and eliminates unsafe needle-to-applicator assembly and sterility concerns.
  • Our patented Bio-Bond™ anti-migration technology helps prevent chip migration, making it safer for pets and ensuring the microchip can be found and scanned

NOTE: Microchipping pets is a veterinary procedure that should only be performed by a licensed veterinarian or under supervision of a licensed veterinarian.
