Dog and Cat Microchipping in Nairobi; A Microchip is a tiny chip the size of a grain of rice and is inserted under the skin of your furry friend. Each chip contains a unique identification code, either in letters and numbers or a series of 15-digit unique numbers. Microchips do not have GPS technology. Here in Nairobi, almost all veterinary practices follow the international standards for microchip insertion, that is, to insert microchips that do not contain any information except the unique codes for contact tracing and identification.

Is it mandatory for my pet to be microchipped in Nairobi?

Microchipping of a pet, especially for dogs and cats, is not compulsory. However, it is one of the basic requirements for all pets traveling abroad. Microchipping is always done before rabies vaccination following the international pet travel scheme.

How can I use the microchip if my pet ever gets lost?

The microchip number is linked to the clinic database. Once your pet gets lost and taken to the nearest veterinary clinic, the clinic representative will scan it for microchip reading. Other clinics will be alerted to check where the found pet is registered and trace the owner to be reunited.
