Microchipping

Your details will be confirmed by Petlog and your pet reunited with you.

 

 

Why Microchip?

 

The chip only takes a few seconds to implant using a needle; the process is not dissimilar to an injection.

 

Microchipping uses Radio Frequency (RFID) technology and cannot be tampered with, fade or be removed, unlike a tattoo. Registration for Petlog is free for life. If you do change address do not forget to inform Petlog, who will update your details.

 

If you want to go abroad with your pet, the Pet Passport Scheme already stipulates that all dogs and cats entering the UK must be microchipped. The government is proposing for every dog, and eventually every cat to be identified by a microchip by 2016.

 

 

We recommend all dogs are microchipped and that information is kept up to date on the chip data base.

What is Microchipping?

 

A tiny, glass, inert capsule the size of a grain of rice, is inserted under the skin between the shoulders, containing an identification number relating you to your pet.

 

How Does it Work?

 

If your pet does stray and is found, a vet, rescue centre or dog warden will use a small hand held scanner to detect the microchip number. This number is registered with Petlog, a national database run by the Kennel Club. Your details will be confirmed by Petlog and your pet reunited with you.
