Microchipping is a simple and permanent form of identification for your pet, essential for obtaining a Pet Passport, and for peace of mind.
It is a quick and usually painless procedure to inject a tiny microchip under the loose skin at the back of the animal’s neck. The chip holds a 15-digit code which is read by a hand held scanner. WHen the central database is contacted, the unique code number on the chip identifies the animal and the owner by name, address and telephone number.
Most local authorities, police, animal charities and vets have a scanner. The database is accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year and the system is internationally recognised. Microchipping your pet requires just a normal visit to one of our surgeries.
