Be sure your furry friend has their COMPASS so they can find their way home.


A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is encoded with a unique ID number that will be assigned to your pet. No two microchips have the same ID number.

The microchip is placed between your dog’s or cat’s shoulder blades under a veterinarian’s supervision. 

Implantation is quick, easy and virtually painless — similar to a vaccine injection — and can be performed during a regular veterinary check-up visit.

With Your Purchase of Our Compass Microchip, You Receive a Free Lifetime Microchip Registration with AKC Reunite.

You will never need to pay any other fees to keep your pet registered in the AKC Reunite system.  Many competing microchip programs have hidden fees and annual renewals.

 With Compass, registration is free for the life of your pet.

Pets with microchips are twenty times more likely to be reunited with their owners.

A microchip is not a tracking device. It can only be “turned on” for a few seconds at a time by a handheld microchip scanner that is passed over the area the microchip is implanted to read the microchip’s unique ID number.

Veterinarians and shelters have these scanners and use them to help lost pets all of the time.

Veterinarians also check pet’s microchips during annual wellness exams to make sure all is working properly and secondly to start a conversation about whether or not your information is up to date on your pet’s microchip enrollment record.

Manufactured by Trovan in Europe, AKC Reunite 134.2 kHz/ISO/International microchips are seamless, 100% bioglass encapsulated transponders with no plastic parts. This seamless design helps ensure the lifetime integrity of the microchip. Our all-in-one syringe delivery device also features medical-grade needles that are arguably the sharpest in the industry.

AKC Reunite microchips have a greenish tint because they are manufactured with bioglass.  Our ISO certified microchips are the "standard" that can be read worldwide by the highest number of scanners. 

If a microchip is made of clear material or a polymer, it is NOT bioglass! Microchips made from different plastic parts, including sheaths, that are melted together run the risk of leaking. Moisture or any leakage can lead to microchip failure in the future.

A microchip with clear glass is not made with bioglass. Instead of laser sealing the capsule, the entire transponder is heated during the sealing process. Overheating the electronic transponder can impact the longevity of the microchip. There’s also a likelihood clear glass contains lead. Yes, lead.

Microchip, placement, and lifetime registration:  regularly $49.50. On sale now for $34.00.
