Microchipping

MicrochippingA small microchip is inserted under the skin, between the shoulder blades, which stores an owners contact details so that a lost pet can be traced back to his/her rightful owner. This is typically carried out during vaccinations or when the animal is under general anaesthesia for neutering.

By April 2016 it will be compulsory for all dogs in England to be microchipped to help deter theft, encourage responsible ownership and to help re-unite lost dogs. Visit the Dogs Trust website for more information on microchipping.
