Did you know Microchipping your dog is the best way to increase your pet's chances of getting home? On average it costs £30 to microchip your furry friend, but Dogs Trust are currently offering free microchipping across the country, so why not get involved? It can save your pet and your wallet!
A microchip is a small electronic chip, around the size of a grain of rice, which is implanted under the dog’s skin and contains a unique number that can be read by a scanner.
The dog owner’s contact details relating to each number are logged on a central database, so should the dog ever go missing or be stolen it can be scanned by the authorities and returned to his owner swiftly and safely. It is vital that the owner takes responsibility for updating their details with the database should their circumstances change.
