What is a microchip?

A microchip is a small, electronic chip enclosed in a cylinder that is about the same size as a small grain of rice. The microchip is activated when a scanner is passed over the area. The chip transmits the identification number to the scanner and the number is displayed on a screen. This identification number is permanently registered to the pet owner.
