June is National Microchipping Month

8 June 2015 Posted by admin Blog , , , ,

From April 2016, it will be the law for ALL DOGS in England and Wales to be Microchipped and registered on a microchip database.

The new law means it will be a criminal offence if your dog does not have a Microchip or the details registered to your dog on the Microchip database are incorrect.

What is an Microchip?

A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice with a unique 15 digit identity code. The microchip is implanted quickly and easily into the scruff of a pets neck by a vet or trained implanter.

Microchips are suitable for all pets regardless of age or breed and if you have more than one pet each one can be separately microchipped and identified.

How a Microchip works

A microchip remains electronically inactive until scanned by a microchip scanner used routinely in vets, rescue kennels, charities and dog wardens to detect the unique identity code. Microchips are registered on a pet database where your records can be accessed 24/7, 365 days a year, ensuring whatever the day, date or time of day your pet can always be traced back to their home.


Make sure that if your pet goes missing, you have the best chance of finding them again quickly.

Always make sure that your contact details are up to date on the pet database.

We are doing a special offer on microchipping for the month of June in collaboration with National Microchipping Month.
