Microchipping

Safeguard your pet with a microchip

Safeguard against your pet getting lost, injured or stolen with our microchipping service.

Microchipping your pet allows them to be identified if they get lost, injured or stolen and increases the chances of reunion should such an event occur.

Microchipping is a straightforward procedure, involving the insertion of a small chip under the skin at the scruff of the neck. The process gives owners peace of mind and allows our team to get to know your pet.

What happens when your pet is microchipped

Your pet’s microchip is given a number, which will show up when they are scanned.

We will check that all of your contact details are correct and these details are kept alongside the microchip number on a database, so that your pet can be returned to you if it is lost or stolen.

This has been a legal requirement for dogs since April 2016.

You must make sure your dog is fitted with a microchip by the time it is 8 weeks old. If your dog is not microchipped you can be fined up to £500.

Please keep your microchip details up to date if your home circumstances change. You update your details by contacting the database company.

If you do not know your dog’s microchip number you can find out by contacting us.

If you are buying a dog

You should ask for proof that a microchip has been fitted before buying your dog.

You can ask to see any of the following as proof:

  • Microchip Certificate
  • Vet Records
  • Pet Passport

You may also be able to see microchip information in the dog’s pet insurance papers.

You must make sure the microchip details are updated once you take ownership of the dog.
