Installing the chip in a veterinary clinic takes only a few minutes and is absolutely safe for the animal.

On April 1, a campaign will begin in Moscow state veterinary clinics, within the framework of which it is possible to microchip pets at a reduced price. Within a month, the cost of the service will be only 706 rubles, including the microchip. This was told in the press service Moscow Veterinary Committee

Installing a chip in a veterinary clinic takes only a few minutes. This is absolutely safe for the animal… The capsule is inserted under the skin at the withers using a disposable applicator. The microchip itself is inactive without a scanner.

The capsule contains a personal 15-digit number by which the pet can be identified. Information about him is entered into an automated system, where a common database of chipped pets is formed.

If the animal gets lost and ends up in a shelter or veterinary clinic, veterinarians use a scanner to read the number from the chip and find the owner. The microchip makes it possible to identify a lost animal even outside Russia. It may also be required for travel, since only chipped animals are allowed to be imported to the countries of the European Union and the Eurasian Economic Union.

Last year, more than 5800 pets were chipped in Moscow veterinary clinics. Among them there are about 3700 dogs and about 1900 cats. In addition, residents of Moscow have chipped ferrets, raccoons, meerkats, reptiles, large parrots and peacocks.

Pets in Moscow can be chipped at 26 state veterinary clinics by making an appointment with a veterinarian through the portal or a mobile application. “State services of Moscow”.

On the portal you can also post an ad about the loss or finding of an animal.

Detailed information can be obtained by calling the round-the-clock telephone of the state veterinary service: +7 (495) 612-04-25.
