What is Microchipping?

Microchipping provides a permanent identification method that helps reunite pets and owners should they become lost or stolen.

In a simple procedure a microchip is placed under the skin between the cat’s shoulder blades. Each chip contains a unique number which can be scanned if a lost animal is found and matched to the owner’s contact details on a database. Owners are obliged to maintain accurate records with their veterinary practice.

This won’t hurt! Microchipping is very similar to a routine vaccination injection and the materials used in their production are non-reactive so as not to cause any problems.
