Will the chip wear out and need to be replaced?

The chip does not have an internal battery or power source. In fact, most of the time it’s inactive. When the microchip reader is passed over it, the chip gets enough power from the reader to transmit the pet's ID number. Since there is no battery and no moving parts, there's nothing to wear out or replace. The microchip will last throughout your pet's lifetime.
