Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help you today.I don't know why they wouldn't; I certainly wouldn't have an issue with it. My hospital has a universal scanner which, hopefully, would detect the same frequency as that being emitted by the rfid chip although there's no guarantee that this would be the case.In my canine patients, the universal scanners don't appear to be 100% reliable in detecting all of the different microchips which are available although in theory, they should.
