Microchipping provides an invaluable insurance against loss of a pet – thousands of pets are needlessly re-homed or destroyed each year because their owners cannot be traced. It is a quick procedure that can be carried out during a routine consultation, or while pets are hospitalised for other reasons.

“ thank you for re-uniting us with our long lost cat – MJ had thankfully been chipped two years ago- our two young girls are over the moon to have him back…”

Microchipping is also the first stage of the pet passport scheme.
