Microchiping

Microchips (or identichips) are a permanent way of identifying your pet.  

 

In April 2016 it became compulsory for all dogs in the UK to be microchipped. If your dog is not microchipped you may be liable to a fine. We recommend microchipping all pets.

 

A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is injected under the skin on the back of the neck.

 

Each microchip carries a unique number which is read using a special scanner.

 

Vets and animal rescue organisations scan all stray animals.  If the animal has a microchip then owner details can be found on a central database to enable the pet and owner to be reunited.

 

Being able to contact you quickly in an emergency can sometimes be life saving for your pet.

 

Please call 0151 423 1388 arrange an appointment if you wish for your pet to be microchipped.

Microchiping is included in our PET HEALTH CLUB
