Microchipping is a simple procedure to help identify your pet if lost or stolen. It is also part of the requirements for your pet passport and, since April 2016, it is a legal requirement. Although this law only relates to dogs for now, this does not mean that microchipping other pets is not as important.
Microchipping is an injection containing a small electronic chip the size of a rice grain, injected under the skin. It is safe and largely painless. The chip is present for life and doesn’t need replacing. These chips can be scanned to reunite pets with their loved ones. Veterinarians, dog wardens, and animal welfare organisations will routinely check lost or stray animals for microchips too and allow for the safe return home of the pet.
