BackHome® proudly introducedSouth Africa’s first mini microchip! After a decade of excellence in Pet Electronic Identification, Virbac introduced the first mini microchip into the South African market. Because it’s 33% smaller than traditional microchips, it has BIG benefits for you, and most importantly, your pets. Due to the size and design which has a silicone coating, the BackHome® mini microchip reduces pain during the implant. Smaller than a grain of rice, the BackHome® mini microchip is encapsulated in parylene a “tissue friendly” material which reduces the possibility of migration of the chip. The transponder is completely passive and does not provoke any harm or allergies. So insist on a Backhome Microchip.
