As the most effective form of permanent pet identification, new laws require that all pets be microchipped at the time of registration. Microchipping is a quick procedure involving a chip the size of a grain of rice being injected under the skin. Containing a 15 digit code unique to your pet, microchipping details are entered onto a national database. If your pet gets lost and is handed to any council, shelter or animal hospital, the unique code can be read and you will be contacted. At Ascot Veterinary Hospital, we use 15 digit ISO standard chips that meet international travel requirements.
