It is a legal requirement for all dogs in the UK over the age of 8 weeks to have a microchip, and at Forest Vets, we recommend that all cats have one as well. This will allow your pet to be identified and returned to you if he were to go missing or be stolen.
Microchips can be placed when the pet is conscious. The chip is about the size of a grain of rice and is placed with a large needle in the scruff of the neck. You are responsible for keeping your contact details up to date with the microchip database company.
We offer a reduced price for microchips that are placed at the same time as another procedure. Please enquire for more information or to book an appointment.
