Microchips…..A service we are happy to provide to AED clients!

Microchip technology is being used increasingly for horses and is a means of lifetime identification.  Each chip number is unique with characters that designate the manufacturer, the country of origin, and the horse registered with the chip insertion.  Currently, the USEF, USHJA, FEI, and Jockey Club require micro-chipping of any horse in their registries and most other registries are quickly following suit.  A microchip does not contain a power source, so they do not expire and are readable with handheld scanners throughout the life of your horse.  Along with horse identification for registration, microchips serve as protection in situations of loss or theft that allows for recovery and proof of ownership .  Microchips are an easy way to protect your horse and Advanced Equine Dentistry is happy to provide this service to our clients and their beloved equines!
