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 www.gov.uk/get-your-dog-microchipped
If your dog strays and becomes lost, you can find out more at the Counils Dog Warden web page.
