A microchip ensures your pet can always be identified; giving you complete piece of mind
Imagine how you’d feel if your cat failed to come home one evening or your dog ran away during a walk. Hundreds of pets stray or become lost every year, meaning they can end up at pounds, police stations or animal rescue homes.
To have the best chance of being reunited with your pet, we strongly recommend having them fitted with a microchip. This is a tiny device which is injected under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades.
The microchip is programmed with a unique identification number which is recorded on a central database, along with your name and contact details. The chip is read using a handheld scanner, something which is commonly available at vets, police stations and rescue centres. It means people who find your pet can help them find their way home to you.
As well as a standard chip, we can also fit a slightly more expensive biotherm chip which takes your pet’s body temperature whenever it’s scanned. This spares your pet the unpleasant experience of thermometer readings for the rest of its life.
The procedure for having a chip fitted to your pet is quick and easy – we can do it during one of our standard consultations – and this a simple process and can give you peace of mind for your pet’s lifetime. Just make sure you keep your contact details up-to-date on the central database!
