Pet microchipping

The pet microchip:

  • is the size of a grain of rice
  • is quick and easy to implant
  • is painless and requires no anaesthetic, whatever the species of animal
  • has its own unique number

Your pets and your details are registered against this number and held on a central database for the life of your pet.

What happens if your cat or dog goes missing

If a cat or dog is found and handed to us, it will be scanned to reveal its microchip number.  

We will then contact the database to obtain the owner's details, and contact the owner to inform them we have their pet.

It is therefore important that owners ensure their contact details are kept up to date.
