Microchipping your pet gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they become lost or stolen.
Many pets can be chipped including cats, dogs (this is a legal requirement), rabbits, parrots etc.
A microchip is approximately the size of a grain of rice. This is implanted under the skin on the scruff of the neck. This then gives the pet their own unique number.
This is then entered onto a national data base with the pet owners details. Thousands of pets are lost every year and many are never reunited with their owners.
Please chip your pet so this never happens to you and please keep your contact details up to date with the idchip company.
