Microchipping

 

Where can I get my pet microchipped in Maidstone ?

Here at Pennard Vets in Maidstone we are great believers in pet microchipping.

If the worst happens and your pet strays, a microchip increases the chances that you will be reunited with your animal friend because the chip’s number can be checked against a national database to find your details.

The microchips are implanted in the loose skin on your pet’s back. Unlike collars and tags, pet microchips cannot get lost.

You do need to keep your details up-to-date on the register , however.

Since April 2016 it has been a legal requirement for all dogs in the UK to be microchipped and recorded. Another legal requirement is that all dogs should wear a collar/tag with the owner’s name and address attached.

At Pennard Vets in Maidstone, we use Petlog microchips as they have the UK’s largest microchip database. Please phone us for more details.
