Microchipping is an invaluable way of easily and permanently identifying your dog.
It's now a legal requirement to have any dog over the age of eight weeks microchipped in England and Wales.
How would you feel if your pet strayed, became lost or worse still, was stolen?
It happens everyday, and of course if an animal can’t be identified it can’t be returned.
The solution is a microchip which is a permanent form of identification.
Placing a microchip is quick and simple. The tiny Microchip, encased in biocompatible glass, is injected under the loose skin of the neck in dogs and cats (in other animals the microchip may be inserted elsewhere).
Should the animal stray or be picked up by one of the local authorities, the scanner will read the unique 15-digit code. The secure databases (accessible 24 hours a day, 365 days a year) can then identify the animal, as well as it’s owners, name, address and telephone number so that pet and owner can be reunited in the shortest possible time.
