The MTA will be developing various guidance documents for microchip Implanters and for pet owners, these will be included here, and show under the above headers.

MTA members can only be responsible for the chips they supply, NOT for their implantation, when chips migrate or disappear this is generally viewed as implanter technique issues or 'bad luck on the day'. All of our members will reimburse reasonable costs where a chip is shown to be present and non-functioning.

Please ensure that your chosen implanter carries appropriate insurance.

The first document here shows how an MTA member will ‘investigate’ an adverse event’
