What is a microchip?

A microchip is a small electronic device that is the size of a grain of rice and is inserted under the skin between your pet’s shoulder blades. The chip has a unique serial number associated with it which is picked up when your pet is scanned. This number is linked to a pet owner database so that we can contact you if your pet is found.


Why microchip your pet?

It is a legal requirement for all dogs in the UK to be microchipped before they are 8 weeks old. If your dog is not microchipped, you can incur a fine of up to £500. It will soon become mandatory to microchip cats too.

Besides complying with the law, microchipping will greatly improve your chances of being reunited with your pet should they go missing. With pet thefts on the rise, this rapid procedure could make all the difference.

Microchips are also a requirement if you plan to travel abroad with your pet.
