Home Again Microchip

The HomeAgain service starts with the microchip itself. Our microchip is centered on the use of a passive electronic device that emits a radio frequency only when activated by the scanner. Unique Each HomeAgain microchip is designed with the express purpose of storing and transmitting a unique alphanumeric code. This code represents your pet's essential identification - it is the number used by HomeAgain to determine your address and phone number, enabling your pet to return home. In addition, HomeAgain is the only microchip on the market today that has the Bio-Bond patented anti-migration feature to help ensure that the chip stays in place. Size The size of the HomeAgain microchip is one of its most significant features. About the size of a grain of rice (approximately 12mm), the microchip is so small it cannot be seen once it has been implanted. Thanks to this small size, the actual implantation of the microchip is quite easy. Your veterinarian simply injects it beneath the surface of the skin between the shoulder blades, like a routine shot. The process takes only a few seconds, is virtually painless, and requires no special treatment or anesthetic. For life Finally, and most importantly, the HomeAgain microchip has no batteries or internal energy source so it will last the life of your pet. After implantation, the microchip remains inactive until it is read with a scanner - the low radio frequency emitted by the scanner provides the microchip with the power necessary to transmit its unique code and positively identify the animal. Thus, the microchip itself has no internal power and will be able to transmit the ID code for the life of the animal.

Home Again Will Not Honor Warranty

posted 2 years ago

I have been breeding top quality Labs for over 30 years and have been using Home Again products. I have several dogs that after one year I can't find the chip because they "migrate"! But that is not the worst part.

I purchased a new scanner on 10/29/10. Home Again offers a 2 year manufacturer warranty. What a JOKE! I called the company to let them know that my scanner was not working properly. They told me that my scanner was not covered because I purchased it from Direct Pet Superstore. Even though I purchased it new and only had it for 1 1/2 years it was not covered because Direct Pet purchased it from them over 6 months ago! So now I'm stuck with a scanner under 2 years of age without a warranty. I WILL NEVER PURCHASE HOME AGAIN PRODUCTS AGAIN!!!

Pros: None

Cons: Can't find chips after a year

Huge Mistake

posted 3 years ago

Home Again contacted me about my lost cat. A lady brought her into a local vet. When I called the vet office I asked that she get medical care and that I would pick her up at 6:30. The vet recklessly gave my cat back to the woman without vet care because they couldn't confirm payment. Even though I specified that I would pay. When I called Home Again they put me into contact with the insane lady and the lady basically said she would not give my cat back. Home Again will not release her name and address to me. My cat needs vet care not to mention that I love her. Although as a Maine Coon I realize I can't keep her indoors for any length of time. I wish I had never used Home Again. This lady could seriously harm my cat. And Home Again could have helped.

Pros: None

Cons: Awful
