It is now compulsory to have all cats and dogs microchipped. Microchipping is the only way to permanently identify your pet.
The microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice and is injected subcutaneously under the skin of the neck area.
The chip contains a unique number that is registered together with your information on a data base.
The injection is well tolerated in most patients but the small amount of pain is worth the security of knowing your pet is identifiable should they get lost.
Always make sure that the information registered to the microchip is current and has your up to date contact details.
