Implantation procedure of EasyTrac-ID


Microchip implantation

During the implant procedure, the EasyTrac-ID (ISO) Microchip is scanned 3 times with the (ISO) reader.

Scan the animal to make sure it does not have a microchip yet.

Scan the EasyTrac-ID (ISO) FDX-B Microchip in the sterile packaging to verify the unique identification number on the barcode sticker before the microchip is implanted.

Scan the animal once again after implanting the microchip to check the unique microchip number and register on the registration form.

Implantation procedure for Horses

The area of implantation for horses and ponies is on the left side of the neck, halfway between the crown and the withers of the horse, about 2.5cm below the centre of the neck ligament. Clean the area around this place with betadine. If necessary, shave the spot the size of a coin. Then dab the skin well with alcohol. Use the supplied sterile needle and single-use injector to insert the microchip intramuscularly into the prepared area perpendicular to the neck. After the microchip has been inserted, dab the area well with alcohol. Give the horse or pony a rest for at least 12 hours.

Implantation procedure for dogs, cats and other small pets

The area of implantation for dogs and cats is the dorsal midline, somewhat caudal of the line between the shoulder blades. The microchip should be placed in the deep hypodermal plane, as close as possible to or in the trapezius muscle, above the dorsal processus spinosus of the fifth or sixth thoracic vertebrae. Prepare the area for a sterile injection. Pull the skin up like a tent and place the bevel of the injection needle against the foot of the tent at an angle of 20-30 degrees to the dorsal midline. Insert the needle subcutaneously until the needle holder touches the skin. Then press the Single-use injector.

Implantation procedure for birds

The bird must be well restrained. In order to prevent or reduce unrest in large birds, it is advisable to use a light sedative. The right implantation area to inject the microchip is the thickest part of the pectoral muscle. It is usually covered with feathers. When these are well spread out, the area can be cleaned well with alcohol. Insert the sterile injection needle only so deep that the bevel stands upwards at an angle of about 30 degrees. Insert the injection needle only so deep that the bevel of the needle is just below the skin; for small birds, only as deep as you feel is sufficient. Press the Single-use injector.
