MICROCHIPPING

Dog's Portrait

 What is microchipping? 

Microchipping is a simple, safe and quick procedure which makes reuniting dogs with their owners much more likely. A microchip is the size of a grain of rice and the procedure, which is carried out by a vet or trained microchip implanter, takes only a few minutes and lasts a lifetime.

Mini microchips are available for small breeds. There are mini microchips available (the same standard and performance of the existing chip) with a smaller needle for implantation.

After April 2016 , legislation was to make it compulsory dogs to be microchipped before 8 weeks of age, this is to help a huge problem of stray dogs, and irresponsible ownership. A microchip  is implanted under the skin painlessly, the chip has an individual number which is read by a suitable scanner, the registered owners details are held on a database. This means that an animal can be reunited to the person who is held on the records, it important to keep the details up to date for example addresses telephone numbers.
