Microchipping your pet gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they become lost or stolen.
Thousands of pets are lost every year and many are never reunited with their owners. There are many animals that can be microchipped including your pet dogs, cats and rabbits. The procedure is carried out during a routine appointment at the surgery and involves a injection, which inserts a permanent microchip underneath the pets skin. The microchips unique code is then registered at the surgery with the owner contact details and pets details and stored on a national database.
From April 2016 it is now a legal requirement for ALL Dogs to be michochipped and contacts details be kept up to date failure to do so will result in a fine of up to £500 from the local police or authorities.
