Microchipping

Microchipping your pet gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they become lost or stolen. Many pets can be microchipped including cats, dogs, rabbits and horses. Check with your vet for advice, as it will depend on the species, size and condition of your animal. Thousands of pets are lost every year and many are never reunited with their owners – microchipping can change that. While collars and tags can get caught or removed – microchipping identifies your pet permanently and effectively.

How it works

A tiny microchip is inserted under the animal’s skin. This gives the pet their own unique code. The microchip can be scanned and matched to the owner’s contact details, which are kept on a database, such as the national PetLog database. You must make sure the database you are registered with has your up-to-date contact details.
