Microchipping

 FROM APRIL 2016 IT IS LAW FOR ALL DOGS TO BE MICROCHIPPED

We are now offering a microchipping service.

The procedure will be carried out by Tina who has passed her pet-detect microchipping course and is fully insured to carry out the procedure.

 All proceeds from the microchipping will be given to Rover Rescue who we support in their work to rehome unwanted and ill treated animals.

 What is a microchip?

A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. It consists of a tiny computer chip housed in a type of glass made to be compatible with living tissue. The microchip is implanted between the dog's shoulder blades under the skin with a needle and special syringe. The process is similar to getting a shot. Little to no pain is experienced - most dogs do not seem to even feel it being implanted. Once in place, the microchip can be detected immediately with a handheld device that uses radio waves to read the chip. This device scans the microchip, and then displays a unique alphanumeric code. Once the microchip is placed, the dog must be registered with the microchip company, usually for a one-time fee. Then, the dog can be traced back to the owner if found.
