Each year more than 300,000 animals go astray in the UK alone. Most of them cannot be returned home as their owners cannot be identified. The lucky ones end up in an animal shelter to be re-homed.
Since 6th April 2016 it has been compulsory for all dogs to be micro-chipped in the UK and compulsory for all puppies to be micro-chipped and registered with an approved database before 8 weeks old.
Micro-chipping is the most effective way of identifying a lost pet; micro-chips cannot be removed like a collar.
We use SmartChip micro-chips, they have a unique number which is stored on a national database called Smarttrace. This is easy to use and user-friendly.
A quick scan of the chip by a warden, shelter or vet allows the owners details to be looked up, the owner contacted and re-united with the lost pet with a minimum amount of stress for all involved.
We can provide the standard SmartChip micro-chips or the mini micro-chips for smaller animals. We can micro-chip puppies from 6 weeks depending on their size.
We are SmartChip trained implanters, we can visit you for implanting, standard price £10 per chip but discounts available for litters.
