Microchipping

 

FROM 6TH APRIL 2016 YOUR DOG MUST BE MICROCHIPPED BY LAW

Why get your pet microchipped at Newton Vets?

  1. We only use Petlog microchips, the Uk's largest lost and found database for microchipped pets
  2. We only use Micro Microchips which are 34% smaller than the standard microchips. Because they are much smaller the pet hardly notices the implantation of it!
  3. The microchips have an anti-migratory coating on them to stop them from travelling around your pet's body undermeath their skin. It stays where it was implanted - inbetween the shoulder blades.
  4. Implantation of the microchip is done by a Vet, and a Vet only, to give you piece of mind that it has been placed correctly by a very experienced person.

The microchip is implanted in the fatty scruff at the back of the neck. When the microchip is scanned a unique number is viewed. This number can then be typed into a computer database, that only vets, dog wardens and animal charities can access, and your details will be given so that we can contact you and organise a happy reunion.

If ever you move house or change your telephone number you must contact your animal's microchip company to update your details.
