This quick and simple procedure ensures that your pet can be easily identified wherever they go.
An 'identichip' is a tiny microchip with an identification code unique to you and your pet. It is injected under the loose skin at the back of the neck. If your pet goes missing and is picked up, a widely available scanner will detect the identichip and read the unique code. All your details are recorded on a computer database and you will be contacted immediately.
An identichip is completely safe for your pet and causes no discomfort beyond that of any other injection.
If you are attending the practice for a routine check-up or booster you can always ask for your pet to be identichipped at the same time. As of the 6th of April 2016 all dogs must be microchipped and registered on an authorised database. We currently have a special offer on microchips until the 6th of April and microchipping is free for members of our pet health club.
