Microchipping

Here at Paws in the City Greenford we offer microchipping. Whilst it is essential for your pet’s safety, it’s also a legal requirement to ensure that dog and cats are microchipped.

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.

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.

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.

FAQ

A pet microchip is a tiny computer chip with a unique serial number on it. It's the size of a grain of rice and can be injected into the animal's scruff of the neck in a quick and painless procedure.

Micro chips are crucial since they save your pet's necessary information. The owner's name, address, and contact information are normally included, as well as the pet's name, age, and description.

If your pet goes missing, a veterinarian can read the chip and check the animal's information using a microchip scanner. After that, the microchip can serve as proof of ownership, ensuring that your pet is returned to you.

You must remember to update your pet microchip to ensure that you can be quickly located if your pet wanders off. If your address, ownership, or contact information changes, you can update your micro chip information. You can do so by contacting the microchipping database that has your dog's or cat's information. What happens if I don't have my pet microchipped?

Local authorities may punish you if you do not microchip your pet. It also makes it very impossible to reunite lost pets with their owners, as many times when a pet goes missing, its ID tag or collar is also missing. Internal identification allows the owner to be reached at any time, preventing the animal from being given to a rehoming charity or being euthanized.

At Paws in the City, we provide microchipping services. We can implant the microchip in a simple and quick procedure and then take care of the microchip registration for you. If necessary, our vets can also perform microchipping under anaesthetic, so please contact us to schedule your visit.
