    Default Microchip scanners

    I didn't want to high jack the other thread on microchipping, but I have been looking at buying a scanner and found a couple different ones and some really expensive and some not so much.

    1) have any of you used or own a micro ID - halo scanner, what are pos. and neg.

    2) what are the scanners you use and the pos. and neg. of those.

    I am using Home Again 15 digit microchips

    I bought the halo style from AKC CAR. It is only a year old but works well. It does pick up different kinds of chips including HomeAgain.

    I have the Home Again scanner--I think it was about $100. I chip all my pups before they leave, so this allows me to make sure the chip stayed and make sure I have the pup properly identified in bill of sale, etc.

    All of my adults are also chipped. Always take the reader with me to eye exams to verify identity.
