Pet Microchips

Microchipping is a simple procedure that enables your pet to be identified, wherever they are

Pet Microchips

Microchipping is a simple procedure that enables your pet to be identified should he/she become lost or stolen. The microchip is implanted under the skin in the neck by a one-off injection. The chip contains an unique individual identification number which is then stored along with your contact details on a national database. Once animals are found and scanned they can be quickly reunited with their owners.

Microchipping with Tracer

900 pets go missing every day in the UK.  Should your pet go missing, by microchipping your pet you are increasing your chances of being reconciled considerably.ts an missing for a variety of reasons, they can become scared during firework season or in a thunderstorm, wander too far from a new house or become lost on a walk away from your home area. Collars and Igs can become detached making it impossible for your pet to be identified. At Usk Vets, we use Tracer Advance microchips because of their unique benefits:

  • Lifetime registration with the Petlog database which is available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. 
  • Four weeks free pet insurance with Petplan, the number one pet insurance provider. Insurance is part of responsible pet ownership and gives you even more peace of mind.  You then have the choice of turning free cover into a full policy once the free cover expires, with the added benefit that within that four weeks your pet is covered for injury as soon as it is microchipped and for illness from fourteen days later. 

Implanting a microchip is just like giving your pet an injection into the skin of the neck. A unique Tracer code is linked to the national 24-hour Petlog database. When your pet is found most vets, animal charities and local dog homes will have a scanner and be able to read the Tracer microchip and find you pet’s details with Petlog so that you have every chance of being reunited with your pet really quickly.

In Wales from 1st March 2015 it will become compulsory to have your dog microchipped.

If you would like more information on microchipping your pet then contact one of our receptionists on 01291 672637.

If you are a horse owner it may be of interest to learn that all foals born from 2009 onwards must now be microchipped.
