Microchipping pets in Worksop

Microchipping is a quick and simple procedure that can help to reunite you with your pet should they go missing.

Microchips are an excellent way of ensuring that your pet can always be identified in the event of loss or theft. A tiny electronic device is injected under the skin, just like a normal vaccination injection. Each microchip has an individual code, which can be decoded by a special hand-held machine that is widely used in veterinary practices and many rescue centres around the country.

How much it costs to microchip your dog, cat, or rabbit

  • Microchipping Price: £15.00

Compulsory & recommended microchipping

On April 6th, 2016, it became a legal requirement in the UK to microchip all dogs from 8 weeks of age and upwards. It’s also highly recommended to microchip cats too whether they’re house cats or they like to roam.

Around 1000 pets in the UK go missing every day, whether from wandering off, escaping, or being stolen. Cats especially are at risk of road traffic accidents too. Without a microchip, or with a microchip that has outdated owner information, it can often be impossible to trace the pet’s owner, something we see far too often in practice. Book a microchipping appointment for your pet and give them the best chance of being reunited with you should they ever go missing.

 

Keeping your contact details up to date

Once your pet is microchipped, it’s important to keep your contact details up to date on the PETtrac database. If your pet should get picked up and taken to a veterinary practice or animal shelter, the staff there will be able to get in touch with you and reunite you with your pet.
