As of April 2016 it is a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped! Owners found to have a dog that is not microchip could face a fine. Don’t get caught out, get your dog microchipped today.
This scenario can be easily avoided by having your pet microchipped. This is a simple procedure which can be done quickly and without anaesthetic.
The microchip is implanted under the skin at the scruff of the neck, using a sterile loaded needle. It takes seconds to do and lasts a lifetime.
How does it work?
Every microchip has its own individual number which can be read using a special scanner. Once inserted, we complete with you the necessary paperwork which then links all your pets details to this number. Should your pet go missing, the vet, rescue centre or dog warden will scan to check for a chip number and this can then be checked on the national database to obtain your details so we can contact you.
To have your pet microchipped, just phone to book an appointment with your vet or nurse.
