RFID Glass Tag
RFID implants are implantable RFID glass tags that can record animal information. Its use in animals is not uncommon. Animal husbandry uses it to record animal information, zoologists implant RFID glass tags in wild animals such as fish and birds for scientific research, and implant it in pets to prevent pets from getting lost.
The History and Current Situation of RFID Glass Tag
At present, the use of pet RFID implants in various countries in the world is different: France stipulated in 1999 that dogs over four months old must be injected with chips, and in 2019, the use of microchips is also mandatory for cats; Microchipping; the United Kingdom required all dogs to be microchipped in April 2016; Chile implemented a pet ownership liability law in 2019, and nearly one million pet cats and dogs have been microchipped.
Small as Rice
RFID glass tag for animal are not angular flakes (as shown in Figure 1). It shapes similar to long-grain rice, which can be as small as 2 mm in diameter and 10 mm in length (as shown in Figure 2). This small RFID tag can read the information inside through a specific “reader” (Figure 3).
The way it works is that when the tag is implanted, the ID code and the breeder’s identity information contained in it will be bound and stored in the database of the pet hospital or rescue organization. When the reader is used to sense the pet carrying the chip, read The device will receive an ID code and enter the code into the database to know the corresponding owner.
Low Cost and Painless
The pet microchip implantation method is subcutaneous injection. Although the needle of the RFID tag injector is large, it is siliconized to reduce resistance and make injection easier. In reality, most pet owners will choose to inject microchips into their pets during sterilization operations, so pets will not feel any needles.
