Free microchipping with the Dogs Trust at Furry Friends Vets
Furry Friends Vet are participating in the Dogs Trust ‘Free Microchipping through Vets’ Campaign. If your dog is not yet microchipped please contact our reception team to book an appointment to get your dog chipped.
Microchipping will soon be compulsory for all dog owners in England from 6 April 2016 all dogs, following an announcement made by the Westminster Government.
Getting your dog microchipped will give you the assurance that should he become lost (or be stolen), he/she is more likely to be returned to you safe and sound.
A microchip is size of a grain of rice is inserted under your dog’s loose skin, on the back of the neck. This gives the dog their own unique code. If you dog is picked up by the dog warden or turns up at a shelter or vet’s, the microchip can be scanned and matched to your contact details, which are kept on a database.
If you have any questions, please contract Furry Friends Vets on 0118 9422904.
