Half price Microchipping throughout March 2016
What is microchipping?
- A small chip, the size of a grain of rice, is inserted between the shoulder blades of your pet using a sterile needle
- The procedure does not require an anaesthetic and is no more painful than a standard vaccination
- The chip is coated in a bio-compatible glass, the same material used in human pacemakers, which is not rejected by the animal's body
- The device fuses to the animal's bodily tissue, meaning it will not move around
The law is changing!
You may have read our recent blog post telling you all about the new changes to the microchipping laws in England (check out our blog here for more information). By April 2016 it will be compulsory for all dogs over the age of 8 weeks to be microchipped and their correct contact information registered onto an approved database, owners who do not comply could face fines of up to £500.
Why not take advantage of this fantastic offer and be prepared for the change! Was £20 NOW £10
It's not just our canine companions that could benefit. Did you know that there are an estimated 2 million stray cats in the UK, many of these were once pets that have become lost or abandoned and have bred uncontrollably with feral strays.
On a weekly basis Brentknoll scan 'stray' cats brought in by members of the public for microchips, sadly only about 1 in 10 are chipped and are reunited with their owners; the rest end up in rescue shelters to be re-homed. Cats rarely wear identification collars and even if they do they are designed to fall off if the cat becomes caught on anything.
A microchip cannot fall off and it is standard practice for rescue shelters, vets and local authorities to check for a microchips for all 'found strays,' your pet could return safely to you in less than 5 minutes of locating a chip!
