Microchipping is a way of increasing the chance of being reunited with your pet should they go missing. Since April 2016 it has been compulsory by law to have your dog microchipped and can carry a £500 fine if your dog is not microchipped.
The microchip itself is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under the skin between the shoulder blades. Occasionally they can move to other areas of the body. We will regularly check your pets microchip and make a note of the number and its location.
The microchips contain a unique number which is registered on a database with yours and your pets details. It is vital that your details are kept up to date.
