Microchipping your pet ensures the best chance of reuniting you with your lost pet. A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is inserted under the skin of your pet by your veterinarian. It is electronically imprinted with a unique and unalterable code. The code is read by passing an infrared scanner over the animal and this can be done if your pet arrives ‘unannounced’ at a Veterinary clinic or animal pound. Once scanned, the unique identification code is used to identify your pet and therefore you as the owner, via an on-line central pet registry. You can then be contacted to arrange a happy reunion with your lost pet.
It is however very important that you ensure your pet’s microchip is registered in your name and that if you change your address or phone number, that these details are updated as a priority. If you are unsure how to do this, please ask our friendly receptionist who will be able to assist you with this.
