Cats and dogs being recruited for Microchip Temperature Study
21st March 2016
We’re on the hunt for 1,000 cats and dogs that have idENTICHIP® with Bio-Thermo® microchips to take part in an exciting temperature study this April.
The study will monitor Microchip Temperatures in home environments, making it convenient to take multiple readings each day. We’re interested in pets from a range of different breeds and ages so that we can collect a broad spectrum of data.
All participants will be supplied with a free SureSenseMicrochip Temperature Reader, which will be used to scan a pet’s idENTICHIP® with Bio-Thermo® microchip. Participants also need to have a Bluetooth enabled mobile phone (Minimum iOS 8 / Android 4.3 ) to record data on the accompanying SureSense app.
A pet’s temperature is a key indicator of their health and the aim of the study is to monitor the correlation between a pet’s activity and environment with fluctuations in their temperature. By gathering multiple readings per pet, this will create an overview of that pet’s overall health and wellbeing. And because the readings will be taken at home, the pet’s stress levels will be kept to a minimum.
If you’re interested in taking part, we’d love to hear from you! Sign up for the The SureSense Microchip Temperature Study here.
If your pet is not microchipped and you are interested in having your pet implanted with an idENTICHIP® with Bio-Thermo® microchip, you can find a veterinary supplier using our practice look-up tool.
The study launches at a time when the microchipping of dogs will become mandatory in the UK. By law, all dogs will need to have a veterinary implanted microchip from 6th April 2016.
