Puppies and kittens are particularly at risk from getting lost just due to their inexperience and inquisitive and mischievous nature.
Micro chipping is the most effective way of identifying a lost pet as it allows you to keep your contact details with your pet at all times.
Every microchip has a unique number which is stored on a national database. If your dog or cat is found after being lost or stolen, the code will be revealed by passing a scanner over the microchip. A scan of the chip reveals your name and address from the database’s records allowing you and your pet to be quickly reunited.
A microchip is slightly smaller than a grain of rice and is inserted under your dog or cat’s skin between the shoulder blades. The procedure is very simple and is no more painful than an injection. Your dog or cat will not be aware of the microchip’s presence once inserted.
Remember, once your pet has been micro chipped it is important to keep your personal details up to date.
