If your dog was ever to slip their collar, find a way out of your garden, be stolen or simply get lost on a walk – dog microchipping can help bring you back together.
The microchip is easily inserted under the skin on the scruff of the neck, just like an injection. It is approximately the size of a large grain of rice and lasts for life.
Each chip has a unique number to which yours and your pets’ details will be associated. These details are then stored on a national database.
If your dog was found and taken to a veterinary practice, an animal charity centre or the dog warden etc they would all be able to read your pets chip, locate your details and happily reunite you both!
