Microchipping your dog

Micro-chipping is a quick and simple procedure to make sure that if your dog goes missing, he or she can be traced back to you. It involves inserting a tiny micro-chip under the skin between the dog's shoulder blades with a needle, and is much like having an injection.

Each micro-chip has a unique identity number, which is logged on a nationwide database, along with the details of the dog and dog owner. It means that if we find a lost dog, it can be easily identified and returned to its owner, saving it the trauma of being sent to kennels and the owner the hassle of having to collect it.
