The SureSense Microchip Reader from pet product specialist SureFlap is compatible with all ISO 15-digit (FDX-B) identification microchips and is said to be ideal for use by veterinary and pet care professionals.

Lightweight design

SureFlap said the lightweight and ergonomic design fits easily into the hand and is easy to operate with the push of a button. Its small size also ensures it is not as intimidating for pets.

The reader features an integrated LCD screen that displays microchip numbers in a large, “easy-to-read format”, and it also reports the temperature of temperature-sensing microchips, if they are present.

Feedback

SureFlap managing director Nick Hill said: “The SureSense Microchip Reader was developed following feedback from veterinary and shelter staff that they often had to share microchip readers.

“The reader is our first professional product, developed exclusively for veterinary professionals, shelters, breeders and pet care professionals. Its affordability and size will ensure it is possible to have multiple readers in each veterinary practice and shelter.”
