What is pet microchipping?

When pets are microchipped, a small microchip (about the size of a grain of rice) is inserted just under their skin between the shoulder blades – the sensation is similar to having a vaccination.

Microchips are designed to last for life and not be removed. They can be scanned using a special microchip scanner that will reveal your pet’s unique microchip code. This code is linked to your contact details on the national pet microchip database – it’s important to always keep this information up to date.

A wide range of animal specialists can scan your pet’s microchip, including veterinary practices like us, dog wardens and charities such as the RSPCA.

Compulsory microchipping

From 1st April 2016, microchipping dogs became a legal requirement in the United Kingdom. Cat microchipping is also now compulsory in England, with all cats over 20 weeks old needing a microchip implanted by the 20th June 2024.

With pet thefts on the rise, microchipping rabbits and ferrets is also highly recommended.
