Pet ID Chip by Dr. Lyle Brumley

Hello. I’m Dr. Lyle Brumley. I am the owner of the Foxmoor Veterinary Clinic that is located in Aurora, IL.

In this video, I’ll be speaking on the subject of animal  microchipping. I want to also give some information about how it is done and how we do it. Often micro-chipping is done during the vaccination and wellness examinations.   Often pet that have not be spayed or neutered will run off due to the “call of the wild” to mate.

Pet ID Chip from AVID

The ID micro-chip that I use and insert is called the AVID FriendChip. This was probably one of the first types of animal tagging devices   that came onto the market. That’s why I use it, and I feel that it is the best one to use. The microchip is actually inserted underneath the skin and between the shoulder blades (in the neck of the animal). I say, “animal” because it can refer to cats, dogs, etc. They even implant these pet microchips inside budgies (lovebirds) in the chest (in the muscle of the breast) of those little birds.

The animal  micro-chips are very small and can be easily applied. A good-sized syringe with a needle (containing the chip) is used. The little microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. There is no need to anesthetize the animal. If your technique is fairly good, you can just pick up the scruff of the skin and then insert the needle underneath the skin. Once the needle is underneath the skin, the plunger is depressed. There’s a little rod in there that pushes that tiny “grain of rice” microchip out while the needle is underneath the skin. When the syringe is retracted, the microchip itself has been deposited under the skin.

Pet ID Chip helps us return your dog or cat.

How does all of this help us out?

Each little ID Chip  has its own number and bar code. Once the chip is inserted into the patient, our clinic then sends the owner the bar code. There’s also a little flyer that the  owner sends in. It is a registration form. This registration is already going to be paid for you by our clinic. There is a sticker that we affix to the form. All you have to do is to fill out the form. You then add the information that you need to add to the form (name, address, etc.). You fold up the form, and then it is all ready to be mailed in. Doing this then transfers the ownership of the pet microchip from the Foxmoor Veterinary Clinic (which bought the  microchips) to the name of the  owner. That pet microchip is now going to be registered with that pet. That ID Chip is, at that point, no longer registered with the Foxmoor Veterinary clinic. Out in California is the where the actual registration process takes place with regards to the computer systems. If you move away from Illinois (Aurora, etc.), all you have to do is pick up the telephone and call the AVID 1-800 number. You then update AVID with the information that they will need (such as your new number/address and the AVID pet microchip number). Thus, the chip ownership follows you even if you change living locations within the U.S.

Micro-chipping has done a very, very good job with regards to returning lost animal . Every so often there is a story about a dog or cat  that was left behind in one state while the  owner moved to another state. The owner gets to the new location and realizes that the dog or cat  was left behind. The animal  is later found by someone at the old location. The “finder” calls in the lost animal . Later on, the  owner gets the pet back with the help of the ID Chip even though the  owner might have left that dog or cat  behind hundreds of miles away.

Tagging with an ID Chip is a good way for a  owner to have control and to show ownership of a animal . It is quite well worth its money.
