What Is Microchipping?
A pet microchip is a small electronic chip, about the size of a grain of rice, that is implanted under your pet’s skin and contains a unique number that the scanner can read.
Once your pet’s been microchipped, you’ll receive confirmation from a registered database containing an ID or reference number, plus your pet’s microchip number.
Microchipping is quick and easy, providing a lifetime of peace of mind.

How Do I Update My Pets Microchip Details?
If you move to a new house or change your phone number, you must contact your microchip database provider to let them know.
It’s simple to update the details for your dog’s microchip; you can do it online, by telephone, or by post – depending on which database your chip is registered to.
If you are unsure who your microchip provider is there are sources online that can identify your microchip database provider, such as check-a-chip.co.uk.
If you do not know your pet’s microchip number, simply pop into the practice and we will scan your pet to identify their microchip number and also the database provider.
