This involves inserting a small device, slightly larger than a piece of long grain rice, under the patients skin. The device returns a unique number when it is scanned by a special scanner. The number is registered to the owner and means that if the pet is lost the owner can be traced. Inserting the chip is easily accomplished in most pets and is a relatively cheap way of providing identification that is not easily lost.

For the 'Pet Passport' scheme and certain breed health schemes microchipping is a requirement.

If you call a vet out of hours, please bear in mind that they may have just worked a full day shift AND will probably be doing another full shift the following day.

Please be aware that out of hours visits and consultations have a surcharge.

Please dont call a vet out for routine or minor matters.
