Dog and Cat Microchipping

We are encouraging you, as pet owners to get your dog or cat microchipped. A microchip is a tiny electronic device, about the size of a grain of rice, which is placed under the skin. Each device has a unique number and your contact details are registered against that number. If your pet goes missing and is picked up by our Dog Warden, or taken to a vet, the animal can be check with a scanner or chip reader, the contact information retrieved and the dog or cat can be returned to you.

Please note- The mcrochipping of dogs is compulsory in England since April 2016. Find out more from the Governments website

If your dog strays and becomes lost, you can find out more at the Counils Dog Warden web page.
