Microchip Your Dog or Cat
If your pet strays, it may remain unidentified for days or even weeks, causing much distress to you, your family and your pet.
Micro-chipping is a simple and effective way to make sure that your pet can be easily identified should you become separated.
A small microchip, (about the size of a grain of rice) is inserted under the loose skin on the back of your pet's neck. This coded inserted chip remains a permanent means of identification of your pet.
