What is microchipping?

A small microchip is inserted under your pet’s skin containing a unique number which is stored on a national database with you and your pet’s details.

Microchipping is an excellent way to ensure your pet can always be reunited with you should it go missing. From 6 April 2016, it is compulsory for owners to ensure their dog is microchipped.

What is a microchip?

-A small chip, the size of a grain of rice, is inserted between the shoulder blades of a dog using a sterile needle
-The procedure does not require an anaesthetic and is no more painful than a standard vaccination
-The chip is coated in a bio-compatible glass, the same material used in human pacemakers, which is not rejected by the dog’s body
-The device fuses to the dog’s bodily tissue.

Is your pet microchipped? If the answer is no, we strongly urge you to get this done asap. It’s quick, easy, simple to do and only takes two minutes. The nurse or vet can do it in a consult.
If the answer is yes…are your contact details up to date? According to Petlog, 8 out of 10 pets are microchipped, but many details are out of date.
