We believe microchipping is part of responsible pet ownership.
Since 6th April 2016, it has been compulsory to have your dog microchipped in the UK.
Microchips have been present worldwide for over twenty years now, and it is a widely accepted practice to chip your pet as the sole means of identification. It will take only minutes to administer and log your pet onto the database. You might as well use this useful piece of technology for the peace of mind that you get from knowing your pet will be reunited with you, should they get lost.
What is a Microchip?
A microchip is a very small radio frequency identification transponder, the size of a grain of rice, which is surrounded in an inert sterile glass capsule.
Why does my pet need a Microchip?
Microchips not only handy for lost and found animals but, also essential for pet passports as they will accurately match the pet to their official paperwork.The chips themselves cannot be removed easily, unless by surgical intervention, so it makes it a sure-fire way of identification. Cats in particular can also use the chip to access newer cat flaps, which read the chip to allow the flap to open, enabling only your cat to enter your home.
