FROM 6 APRIL 2016 NEW GOVERNMENT LEGISLATION MEANS THAT IN THE UK, IT WILL BE A LEGAL REQUIREMENT TO HAVE YOUR DOG MICROCHIPPED.

microchipping02At Downland Veterinary Group, we are happy to offer microchipping. Every year, thousands and thousands of pets go missing. Not knowing where your pet is or how to bring them back can be a helpless, hopeless feeling. It’s a tragedy that happens all too often.

But there is a simple, safe, and effective way to ensure your pet’s safety and retrieval should they ever become lost. Microchipping is a standard procedure that implants a tiny chip underneath your pet’s fur. It is a painless and relatively fast procedure, and is completely safe.

This microchip is registered with your pet’s vital information, and can be scanned by any veterinarian or animal shelter so that they can return your pet directly to you.

Save yourself the heartache and stress of a lost pet. Microchips bring pets home.
