What is microchipping?


A small chip, the size of a grain of rice, is inserted between the shoulder blades of a dog using a sterile needle
The procedure does not require an anaesthetic and is no more painful than a standard vaccination
The chip is coated in a bio-compatible glass, the same material used in human pacemakers, which is not rejected by the dog's body
The device fuses to the dog's bodily tissue.

 

Is your pet microchipped? If the answer is no, we strongly urge you to get this done asap. It's quick, easy, simple to do and only takes two minutes. The nurse or vet can do it in a consult.

If the answer is yes...are your contact details up to date? According to Petlog, 8 out of 10 pets are microchipped, but many details are out of date.

Ring Petlog on 0844 4633 999 to check/up date your information.

 

If you have any questions regarding microchipping or to book an appointment for your pet please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss this, our dedicated team are always happy to help you.
