Microchipping dogs, cats & other pets in North Wales

Microchipping is a quick and simple procedure that can help to reunite you with your pet should they go missing. Dog microchipping is a legal requirement in the UK, and microchipping cats is highly recommended

What is a microchip?

Microchips are a tiny electronic device that are injected under the skin, just like a normal vaccination injection. Each microchip has an individual code, which can be scanned by hand-held machines. These are widely used in veterinary practices and many rescue centres around the country, and enable pets to be identified in the event of loss, theft, and road traffic accidents.

 

Compulsory & recommended pet microchipping

On April 6th, 2016, it became law in the UK to microchip all dogs from 8 weeks of age and upwards. At AllPets Vets in Prestatyn and Rhyl, we also highly recommend microchipping cats in Wales too whether they’re house cats or they like to roam.

Around 1000 pets in the UK go missing every day from wandering off, escaping from home, or theft. Cats especially are at risk of road traffic accidents too. Without a microchip, it can often be impossible to trace the owner, something we see far too often at our vet practices.

With pet thefts on the rise, it can also be a good idea to microchip rabbits and some small furry pets, like ferrets. Ask our team for advice.

Book an appointment for your pet today and give them the best chance of being reunited with you should they ever go missing. And remember, keep your contact details up to date on the microchip database.
