I am a certified microchip implanter trained by a vet through the company, PeddyMark. I am fully insured and pets that are microchipped by me are registered to PetLog (http://www.petlog.org.uk) the UK's largest database for microchipped pets.
I am able to microchip dogs, puppies, cats and kittens.
What Is A Microchip?
A microchip is about the size of a grain of rice. It consists of a tiny computer chip housed in a type of glass made to be compatible with living tissue. The microchip is implanted between the shoulder blades under the skin with a needle and special syringe. Little or no pain is experienced - in fact, most animals are completely unaware that the procedure has taken place. Once in place, the microchip can be detected immediately with a handheld device that uses radio waves to read the chip.
Once the procedure has taken place, I will register the details on the PetLog Database and you will receive confirmation of the implant number and registration details, within 7-10 days.
How Does It Work?
If the unthinkable happens and your pet is lost - a vet, a rescue centre, or a dog warden will use such handheld device to detect the microchip number and contact PetLog. PetLog will then confirm your contact details and you will be reunited with your pet.
If you plan to travel with your pets abroad, then you pet must have a microchip in order to comply with the regulations. The microchip number must be recorded on the pet passport.
Is It a Legal Requirement to Microchip My Pet?
From April 2016, it will be a legal requirement for all dogs to have a microchip implant in the UK.
Some pets just don't enjoy their trip to the vets and turn into a quivering mess! So why stress them out unnecessarily, when you can have such a simple procedure done in your own home where they are relaxed and comfortable.
Alternatively, if your pet enjoys a journey out in the car, why not bring them to my Grooming Room for the microchip implanting... a big cuddle will be rewarded afterwards (for your pet, not you!).
