We try and encourage microchip identification of all animals to prevent loss and theft of loved pets. The chip is inserted under the skin by qualified vets (unlike pet-shops) to ensure accurate and pain free placement.
From April 1st 2016 it is a legal requirement that all dogs are microchipped to prevent straying and theft and heavy fines can in theory be applied to those owners that dont comply with the new rules.
Although there is currently no legal requirement for cats to be microchipped we thoroughly recommend all cats are protected also. More often than not lost cats are not returned to their owners as they have a tendancy to wonder a long way from home!
We offer discounted microchip insertion as well as instantaneous online registration to reduce the need for any paperwork.
Please call for an appointment.
