Microchipping your pet
It is now a legal requirement that puppies or kittens be microchipped before being sold or re-homed.
If your pet has not been microchipped it is an easily performed procedure – the chip is around the size of a grain of rice and is injected under the skin.
How micropchipping works
The code embedded in the microchip is unique to your pet and once entered onto the national database is the most fail safe way to ensure your pet finds their way home if they are lost. All veterinary clinics and animal shelters have a scanner which detects the chip under your pets’ skin. The code can then be entered onto the database to identify the name, address and phone number of the owner to ensure you and your pet are reunited.
