What is Microchipping?
Microchipping is a small computer chip implanted under your dog's skin that acts as a permanent ID.
The procedure is quick and easy and much like a vaccination where a small chip containing a unique number is inserted. When your pet is scanned with a chip reader, that number will appear and the owners details can then be tracked on a computer database.
Microchipping enables many missing dogs to be reunited with their owners. Sadly dogs without microchips may never be reunited with their owners and often end up in shelters, pounds or are never recovered. Read more about Microchipping.
Once your pet is microchipped, your details will be added to the PetTrace database which is accessible nationally and throughout the EU.
Now that you know how important it is, bring your dog along and avail of this fantastic special offer while helping your community along the way.
