PetsGEEKly: World's First Implantable GPS Microchip PDF Print E-mail
Written by Stacy Mantle   
Wednesday, 10 September 2014 18:52

The world's first implantable pet microchip that is enabled with GPS tracking may be available as early as 2015.

Escape Alert, LLC has just filed the first international patents for an implantable microchip with GPS tracking for pets.The chip is designed to alert owners if their pets have escaped a specified location, and enable them to track their pet's exact location using GPS. This is the first implantable microchip that allows GPS tracking.

Microchips have been available for years and are used in nearly every rescued animal adopted from reputable animal rescues. Currently, the chips used today do not allow location services such as GPS tracking. Instead, animals are scanned by a veterinarian or animal rescuer, and assuming the chip has been updated with the current owner's contact information, the animal can be returned without further incident.

These new chips will not only alert the pet parents when their pet has escaped a preselected location, but will enable the owner to drive right to the pet's location.

One of the biggest challenges we have in our pet-centric home is leaving it. We have three dogs who only get along part of the time and are incredibly dependent on both my husband and I. It’s a situation we created, so it’s a situation we need to resolve.

Thankfully, technology is catching up with our actual needs. We can now leave the house without worry because it’s like we’re still there in a lot of ways. Of course, cameras will never take the place of actually being there, but when it comes to alleviating stress, pet cams can help us cope with being away.
