Microchip your dog
Microchipping your dog gives them the best chance of being identified and returned to you if they become lost or stolen.
Thousands of pets are lost every year and many are never reunited with their owners - microchipping can change that.
While collars and tags can get caught or removed - microchipping identifies your dog permanently and harmlessly.
A tiny microchip is inserted under the animal's skin. This gives the dog their own unique code.
The microchip can be scanned and matched to the owner's contact details, which are kept on a database, such as the national Petlog database. You must make sure the database you are registered with has your up-to-date contact details.
Contact your local vet for more information on microchipping.
