  The facts speak for themselves!

  • Large numbers of owned cats are destroyed each year, simply because they lack identification.

      • In the UK it is estimated that more than £250 million a year is spent by local authorities, police forces and animal welfare charities rounding up and caring for stray cats and dogs.

          • It is highly likely that in the future, microchip implants will be more widely used and more lost pets will be reunited with their owners.

  What is the procedure?

  • A Microchip is an implant placed under the skin, usually on the back of the neck between the shoulder blades.

      • Microchipping is great for identifying pets, as collars can be wriggled out of and tattoos often fade with time.

          • It is a one off procedure and the microchip should last a lifetime.

              • The same microchip is used on all species, cats, dogs and horses and is also recognised internationally.

                  • As the unique 15 digit code is permanently embedded in the chip, there is no risk of the code being tampered with.
