chipMicrochipping your pet is a permanent method of identification. It involves implanting a small microchip (the size of a grain of rice) under the skin at the back of the neck, a very quick procedure that is very similar to an injection. When this microchip is read by a special reader, the unique number is linked to your details on a database.

This is invaluable if your pet ever goes missing and required if you ever wanted to travel abroad with your pet. By 2016 microchipping will be a legal requirement.

It can be performed during a consultation or any other procedure at only £10.
