The microchip, which is the size of grain of rice, is implanted into the loose skin between a dog's shoulder blades. It then can be scanned by a microchip reader to reveal a unique code. This allows the police, local authorities and the RSPCA to retrieve the owners’ address details from a national database.

We have many dogs handed into us that are not microchipped which makes it harder to trace the pets owner's so they can be returned home safely.

Make an appointment with us at either of our two clinics and get 10% off microchipping, in order to redeem your 10% off please mention you saw the offer on our website.

Please remember that if you microchip your pet that you update your details if you move home or change any of the contact details that may be held for you so that if your pet is lost we can trace you the owner and return your pet back safely.

The government is consulting on plans to microchip every dog in the UK so that they can be traced to their owners, and the owners held responsible for the actions of their pets.
