Microchipping is a safe and permanent means of identification for your pet.

The microchip is inserted under the skin through a needle during a consultation or can be done at the time of surgery. The procedure is quick and simple and most pets tolerate it very well.

The chip carries a unique number that is registered with a 24 hour data base against your details. Should your pet go missing and be found any time of the day or night, you can then be contacted.

The cost of microchipping is a single low fee that that covers you for the rest of your pets life.

Council regulations have recently changed making it compulsory for all new pets that are being registered to be microchipped.
