Implantation is quick and painless, registration is cheap, there is no scarring or disfigurement, and it cannot be removed or tampered with. We wholeheartedly recommend microchip identification for all dogs, cats and rabbits, and any other valuable animal. Microchipping is now compulsory for all UK dogs over 8 weeks old, and it is quite likely that it will be made compulsory for cats too.

There are several circumstances when a microchip is invaluable:

  • more and more official schemes will require individuals taking part to be microchipped.
  • an injured stray animal is likely to end up at the vets surgery – and we need to be able to contact you urgently to find out how you would like us to look after your pet.
  • if there is any dispute over the ownership of an animal – for example if a valuable animal is stolen – the microchip helps to proove ownership.
  • if you wish to take your pet to Europe on holiday, the first requirement of the Pet Travel Scheme is identification by microchip.
