Get your pet microchipped at Moss Cottage Boarding Kennels Manchester for the special price of £20…….
Whilst every dog owner is legally obliged to ensure that their dog or pet is wearing a collar and identification disc, owners must now have their much-loved companions microchipped so they can be identified through microchip technology.
Microchipping is now recognised as the most effective and secure way of permanently identifying a pet. A unique identification number is registered to the animal and the owner’s details are placed on a national database.
Sadly, the reality is that of the many thousands of pets that go missing each year, it is estimated that less than half of them are reunited with their owners. Don’t wait until it’s too late. Get your pet microchipped and have the assurance that should he become lost (or be stolen), he is more likely to be returned to you safe and sound.
What is a microchip?
A microchip is a small electronic device, which is the size of a grain of rice. The microchip is coded with a unique number that can be read by a scanner. A microchip works through radio wave frequency.
How is the microchip implanted?
Using a specially designed implanting device the microchip is injected through a sterile needle under the dog’s skin.
Where is the microchip implanted?
In dogs, the microchip is implanted under the skin, between the shoulder blades.
Does it hurt?
No anaesthetic is required and the procedure should cause no more discomfort than a standard vaccination.
How does the microchip stay in place?
Once the microchip has been inserted, the dog’s body tissue surrounding the microchip attaches itself, preventing movement of the chip.
