Each animal will be fitted with a traceable device which transmits a radio signal (RFID) which will be inserted into the body of the animal.
The device may be a bolus which is inserted into an animal’s stomach or a microchip which is inserted on the body of the animal. Each device will have a unique number which will be used to identify the animal at the time of a claim. The traceable device can only be retrieved by a qualified and approved vet once an animal has died. The bolus or microchip does not affect the health of the animal.
