What is pet microchipping and why get it done?

When a pet is microchipped, a small ‘chip’ the size of a grain of rice, is inserted just under the skin between their shoulder blades – the sensation is similar to having a vaccination.

The microchip is designed to last for life and not be removed. It can be scanned using a specialist piece of equipment and will reveal your pet’s unique microchip code. This code is linked with your contact details on a national database – which you should always keep up to date.

New Cat Microchipping Law: The June 10th Deadline Has Passed, Act Now

As well as avoiding risking a hefty fine for non-compliance with the dog & cat laws, here’s why you should microchip your pet:

  1. Lost Pets: Microchips provide quick reunions by allowing rescue centres, veterinary practices, and control officers to access owner contact info.
  2. Theft Prevention: Microchipped pets deter theft as they’re easily identified and returned, complicating resale; get the word “Microchipped” or “Chipped” engraved on your pet’s collar.
  3. Emergency Contact: Microchips aid vets in contacting owners swiftly during accidents or medical emergencies.
  4. Ownership Proof: Registered microchips serve as legal proof of ownership, settling disputes and ensuring pets stay with rightful owners.
  5. Travel Compliance: Microchips meet travel regulations, ensuring pets can be returned if lost during trips.
