Your cat or dog can now be permanently identified by placing a tiny microchip under the skin between the shoulder blades. (www.identichip.co.uk)
- The chips are safe and completely harmless, and contain a unique number, which is held in a national register and can be read using a scanner.
- The number is registered in your name and thus absolutely identifies your pet as yours!
- All veterinary practices, animal rescue centres etc. routinely scan lost or stray animals.
If your pet is chipped, and then goes missing you have a far better chance of a happy ending.
Other species of pets may also be identichipped and your vet will be able to advise you.
