Microchipping dogs and puppies

Microchipping dogs and puppies

This is a simple and low cost procedure. A small electronic chip encased in a smooth bead is inserted by needle under the skin in the scruff area.  

This is a legal requirement of dog ownership, and this should be implanted into your puppy/ dog before you purchase them by the age of eight weeks. 

Make sure your contact details are up to date on the microchip database so you can be contacted if your pet is taken to a vets or the dog ward.
