Be aware there are new MICROCHIPPING laws...

DID YOU KNOW?
MICROCHIPPING DOGS
 HAS BECOME
COMPULSORY IN
ENGLAND,
SCOTLAND AND WALES.

The Government has now made microchipping for all dogs compulsory, to help reunite owners with lost or stolen pets, relieve the burden on animal charities and local authorities and protect the welfare of dogs by promoting responsible dog ownership.

What is Microchipping?

Microchipping is a simple safe and quick procedure. It can make all the difference in being reunited with your pet should they stray or go missing.

The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and the procedure, which is carried out by one of our vets, takes only a few minutes and lasts a lifetime.

The microchip is implanted between your pet’s shoulder blades, under the skin, with needle and special syringe.

Once in place, the microchip can be detected immediate, with a handheld device that uses radio waves to read the chip, displaying a unique alphanumeric code attached to your pet's details.

Please remember that under this new law, you must keep your dog, microchip information up-to-date if you change phone numbers or move home, otherwise you may be fined.

Why Microchip your pet?

Millions of pets become lost each year; tragically, few are reunited with their owners. Many lost pets end up in shelters where they are adopted out to new homes because there is no way to locate their original owner or home.

As well as ensuring your pet is wearing an identification tag, a microchip (with up to date contact details) will increase the chances of being reunited should your dog go missing.

Unlike a collar that may break or a tag that might fall off, microchipping offers a permanent method of identification, so you can be safe in the knowledge that you have done everything in your power to ensure that if your pet strays and is found without a collar and tag, they can be scanned, identified and returned home safely.
