Microchipping is a modern way of identifying your pet and helps to reunite lost pets with their owners. The chip is about the size of a grain of rice and is implanted with a needle under the skin. No anaesthetic is required. Any species of pet can be chipped including birds and reptiles!
The chip holds a unique number and this number is linked to information on a central computer , including your pet's name, address and phone number.
Most vets and almost all rescue centers and local authorities have scanners, which will detect a chip and find the number.
Our practice has already used the system to guide several "lost souls" home again. For more information or to book your pet in for chipping please contact the practice.
