Microchipping

Here at Paws in the City Ealing we offer micro chipping. Whilst it is essential for your pet’s safety, it’s also a legal requirement to ensure that dog and cats are microchipped. Also, chips are crucial since they save all of your pet’s pertinent information. If your pet goes missing, a veterinarian can read the chip and check the animal’s information using a microchip scanner, ensuring that your pet is returned to you.

Why you should microchip your pet

It is crucial to have an internal form of identification that cannot be taken off because if your pet is lost, their collar or ID tag may fall off, and if they are stolen, it is likely that the thief would take off any collars or name/ID tags.

If stolen and the microchipping details are all up to date, then you can prove that you are the rightful owner of the animal by having their microchip scanned as your details would then be associated with the animal

The likelihood of reuniting missing dogs with their owners increases dramatically when pets are microchipped and the owner's contact information is stored in the microchipping database. If your pet disappears, you will always be contacted as long as your contact information is maintained and up to date. By calling or going online, you can update your contact information by getting in touch with the database that has the information from your pet's chip.

All dogs in Wales, Scotland, and England must have microchips as of April 6, 2016. All puppies must be legally microchipped before they are placed in their new, permanent homes. If the breeder does not register the puppies before they are eight weeks old, they are breaking the law and should have already done so. The appropriate microchipping documentation must then be given by the breeder to the puppy's new owner before it leaves for its new home.

If you are found to have pets that are not microchipped, you will be given 21 days to do so. A fine of up to £500 could be imposed on you if you don't comply and get a microchip implanted within the allotted time. Notices forcing owners to microchip their animals may be issued by local authorities as well as the police.

A pet microchip is a tiny computer chip, roughly the size of a grain of rice, that is easily and quickly placed under a pet's skin. Typically, a needle is used to inject it towards the scruff of the neck.

The procedure itself is cheap when you consider that it is likely to be the difference between you being reunited with your pet or not.

FAQ

A pet microchip is a miniscule computer chip that contains a unique serial number. It is as small as a single grain of rice and can easily be injected around the scruff of the animal’s neck in a speedy and simple procedure.

Micro chips are important as they store all your pet’s relevant details. These details are usually the owner’s name, address, and contact details, along with the pet’s name, age, and description.

If your pet goes missing, a vet can then use a microchip scanner to read the chip and view the animal’s details. The microchip can then act as proof of ownership and ensure the pet is returned to you.

You must remember to keep your pet’s microchip up to date to ensure that you can be easily found if your pet does go for a wander. You can change microchip details if there is a change in address, ownership or contact details. You can do this by contacting the microchipping database that holds the details of your dog chip or cat chip.

If you fail to microchip your pet, you can be fined by local authorities. It also makes it almost impossible to reunite lost pets with their owners, as many times when a pet is missing, they have also lost their ID tag or collar. Having an internal identification means the owner can always be contacted, and avoids them being passed on to a rehoming charity or euthanised.

We offer microchipping services here at Paws in the City. We can implant the microchip in a very straightforward and quick procedure, and then complete the microchip registration process for you.

We can also offer microchipping under anaesthetic if required, so please get in touch to discuss your microchipping appointment.
