Thousands of cats and dogs are lost each year in the UK and many are never reunited with their owners as they have no permanent identification. Microchipping is the safest way to ensure they can always get back to you when lost.
Microchipping is cheap, harmless, and takes seconds. A small chip (the size of a grain of rice) will be implanted into the back of your pet’s neck with a unique number on it. This procedure will take place with them fully awake and is very similar to giving an injection and cats and dogs tolerate it incredibly well. The unique microchip number is then stored on a central database with your name and address details attached.
For further peace of mind, the general public are unable to access this confidential database, only registered organisations with the necessary security clearance.
