The microchip is a tiny computer chip which has an identification number programmed into it. The chip is encased in a smooth, strong biocompatible glass, and is small enough to fit into a hypodermic needle. Once an animal is injected with the chip, this one-of-a-kind number can identify it throughout his life. The identification cannot be lost, altered or intentionally removed.
