Pets can get lost no matter how responsible an owner you are. Doors can be accidentally left open, houses can be burgled, cats do roam and can sometimes be picked up as strays. Collars and tags are an ideal first line of identity, but these can very easily be lost.
Microchipping is a quick, simple and painless one off injection placing a tiny microchip in the scruff of the neck. If your pet should get lost this unique microchip number can be retrieved by a simple portable scanner and help reunite you and your pet. It is also an integral part of the pet passport scheme allowing it to travel abroad and return to the UK without the need for quarantine.
