What is pet microchipping?

A small microchip, the size of a grain of rice, is inserted just under your pet’s skin between their shoulder blades, just like having a vaccination.

When the microchip is scanned using a specialist piece of equipment, it will reveal your pet’s unique microchip code. This code is then linked with your contact details on a national database – which you should always keep up to date.

Many animal specialists can scan your pet’s microchip, including veterinary practices, dog wardens and charities such as the RSPCA.


Compulsory microchipping for cats & dogs

It has been a legal requirement to microchip dogs in England, Scotland and Wales since April 2016.

From 10 June 2024, in England it will be a legal requirement to microchip cats and register them on a database by the time they’re 20 weeks old – learn more.

Avoid a potential £500 fine and give your pet the best chance of being reunited with you should the unthinkable happen. Book a microchip appointment today.

With pet thefts on the rise, microchipping rabbits and ferrets is highly recommended too.
