microchipping

Collars can fall off or be removed and details on pet tags can fade or become outdated.

Microchipping your pet is very important, if they become lost, you are far more likely to be reunited if he/she is microchipped.

A microchip is a permanent method of electrical identification, the chip itself is very small, about the size of a grain of rice. It is implanted just under the skin between the shoulder blades at the back of your pet’s neck. The chip has a unique number that is registered on a database with you and your pet’s details. Should they become lost, vets, shelters and local councils can scan your pet and contact you via the database.

It is very important to keep your contact details up to date so that if you move or change phone number you can still be contacted.

Your pet should be microchipped prior to purchasing, however if your pet is not yet chipped then we highly recommend that you make an appointment to do so.
