What is Microchipping?
Microchipping is a simple safe and quick procedure. It can make all the difference in being reunited with your pet should they stray or go missing.
The microchip is the size of a grain of rice and the procedure, which is carried out by a vet or trained microchip implanter, only takes a few seconds to implant and lasts a lifetime.
How does a microchip help to reunited a lost pet with their owner?
Once your pet is microchipped, your pet’s and your own details are stored in a microchip database along with the microchip’s unique 15 digit code.
When a missing pet is found, an animal professional (for example a vet or dog warden) will scan the pet revealing the microchip’s unique 15 digit code, and contact the microchip database that your pet is registered with. The customer care staff will perform some security checks before releasing your contact details to the animal professional – allowing your pet to be reunited with you.
