This June is microchipping awareness month and here at the Alcombe veterinary clinics we are actively promoting microchipping for all cats and dogs.
Microchipping is a very important part of animal ownership and can actively increase the chance of being reunited with your pet should they become lost.
The microchips are the size of a grain of rice and are inserted under the skin on the scruff of the neck by a vet or trained professional. Each chip contains a 15 digit identification number which is unique to your pet.
The microchip remains completely inactive until scanned when its unique number is transmitted to the scanner and displayed on the screen. Should you move house or change your contact details you can easily update the chip to ensure you are always going to be easily contactable in the case of a lost animal.
This month we are offering microchipping for only £10 per animal. Please call any of our branches to book an appointment.
