Trovan Mini 8mm Microchips
petDetect supplies two sizes of microchips – Regular 12mm and Mini 8mm – in two formats. The minis are recommended for cats, short coated dogs, many exotic pets - birds, reptiles etc. They are wid3ely used for small wildlife.
All-in-One (A1) format microchips are a single use, fully assembled syringe-style system that is completely disposable.
Needle Only (N4) format microchips require a separate implanter tool onto which the needle is screwed. This reduces the amount of waste produced by each implantation.
Prior to 17th July 2018 the implanter tools are not interchangeable and MUST match the size of microchips you order owing to the difference in needle size. From that date we hve been able to supply the NEW trovan shorter needles which use the same gun as the Mini microchips - PLEASE THROW AWAY YOUR OLD REGULAR GUN - IT CANNOT BE USED AS IT WILL ALSO PUSH OUT THE PUSH ROD.
All of our microchips are fully compliant with ISO FDX-B and well suited to the Pet Travel Scheme, Trovan microchips are used in pets, wildlife and zoo animals across the world. World-wide protected patents ensure their unique design incorporating fewer connection points than any other microchips. German manufacturing ensures each microchip is held to the highest standards. Trovan needles are designed to minimise discomfort with an exceptionally sharp edge and cleverly shaped bevel.
All microchips in the UK must be bought with registration unless they are for use by zoos or in wildlife (or the ROI). We supply this on behalf of our nominated database Petlog and available with either paper forms (post) or online. ROI implanters should not purchase registration from us but instead contact the IKC directly.
