Under Dubai Municipality mandate, all cats and dogs owned in Dubai must be microchipped for identification. The Veterinary Hospital only uses ISO compatible microchips; internationally accepted so your pet may travel overseas (subject to any other specific import requirements).
Microchipping involves the insertion of a transponder device surrounded by an inert casing about the size of a grain of rice. The implantation is simply done by injection under the skin between the shoulders.
Once implanted, the microchip will provide a scanner with a unique number identifying your pet.
