Microchipping

Microchipping is the implantation of an identichip via a needle  under the skin on the back of the neck. This chip reveals a unique number when a scanner is passed over it. This number is  linked to your pet's  name address and phone number. Any animal can have a microchip - please do not hesitate to ask about other animals if you are unsure.

 

The Laws are changing in April 2016. All dogs MUST be microchipped and the details registered up-to-date. This new law does not depend on the age of the dog, it is for ALL dogs.

 

To get your dog microchipped please call one of our surgeries.

Over the years Abbeydale Vets have reunited many animals with their owners via this device. The most memorable being a field trail champion pointer which had been stolen from Cornwall and was brought to the practice by the Hyndburn dog warden!
