What is a Microchip?
A microchip is a harmless permanent implant, the size of a grain of rice, with a unique number which will identify your pet. Your details will be associated with this number, so once registered nationally, you can be contacted if your pet is found anywhere in the country.
Dogs and cats can be microchipped consciously by vets or nurses.
Microchipping is a legal requirement for dogs.
Birds and reptiles are microchipped by our vets.
Mini microchips are new and much smaller than the standard size. We are now routinely giving this to our (smaller) exotic animals, puppies and kittens.
