A microchip is permanent method of identification for your pet. The chip is the size of a grain of rice and is installed using a needle just under skin between the shoulder blades.
Each chip and hence each animal has a unique identification number that can be detected using a microchip scanner. The unique identification number can identify the animal and is linked to the owner’s contacts details that are held in a secure online registry. If your pet wanders off and is found by a stranger, they can take the pet to any vet, animal shelter or local council who can scan the chip and contact you to re-unite you with your pet.
Our veterinarians are accredited to microchip your pets and our service includes lifetime registration with a microchip database register.
