Keys to effective scanning:

  1. Hold the scanner close to, or touching the animal
  2. Scan slowly and repeatedly over the entire body to ensure whether or not a microchip is present
  3. Wave the scanner back and forth lightly while scanning, because microchips can be in various orientations within the animal
  4. Scan first in a horizontal, then a vertical “S” pattern down the animal’s body, as shown in the diagram below
  5. Consider scanning each animal more than once to ensure any present microchip can be localized by the scanner
