Microchipping is a simple and effective way of permanently identifying your dog. It dramatically increases the chances of them quickly coming home to you should they go missing or be involved in an accident. 

We recommend it for all pets to reduce losses due to straying and theft. This simple procedure can be preformed here at any time in your pet’s life and also comes as part of our puppy starter pack.

Microchipping is compulsory for all dogs since 6th April 2016 and could be punishable by a £500 fine.

We recommend it for all pets to reduce losses due to straying and theft and comes as part of our kitten started package and is free to all members of our Practice Health Plan  

This simple procedure can be performed here at any time in your pet’s life and will often do it at the time of neutering so they do not even realise that they have had it done!
