Identichipping is a safe and quick method of ensuring that your pet will return to you should it ever become lost or stray from home. Both dogs and cats can lose collars with nametags on and this is one way of ensuring that you can still be identified as their owner.

A microchip, which is a tiny Ďchipí the size of a grain of rice, is planted underneath the skin at the back of your petís neck in the same way that a booster injection is given. It can be given to any pet, whether it is a horse, dog, cat or parrot. The microchip has a unique identity code for you and your pet which can only be determined by scanning with a special scanner.

After the chip is inserted, we will complete the paperwork and enter the details onto the Identichip website. This ensures that the pet is registered before they even leave the surgery. Should your pet become lost and taken to a police station, the RSPCA, another veterinary surgery or the dog warden, then he or she will be scanned and you will be contacted immediately. It is also important to keep your details up to date.

For around £20.00 you can gain peace of mind knowing that if your pet goes missing, whether at home or on holiday - even if abroad - they can be identified and traced to you. Why not think about having it done next time you bring your pet to the surgery for their annual vaccination?
 

What to do if your pet is lost

First contact identichip on 01904 487600, then ring all vets in your local area. If a cat has gone missing it may be worth asking neighbours to check garages and outhouses in case your cat has become trapped.
 

Change of address

If you change address or phone numbers then you need to notify Identichip by completing the section at the bottom of your identichip certificate or via the Identichip website.
