MicroChipping in Nottingham

Why should I microchip my pet

If your pet is lost, stolen or has run away, with a mico chip fitted, you will be contacted as soon as your pet is found. There are over 3,000 scanners in use all over the country, at rescue centres, vets, dog wardens and police, which can read the unique code stored in the microchip. It is then a simple process of looking up the owner details stored on the PetLog database. PetLog is the national central database run by the Kennel Club. PetLog will confirm your contact details and you will be reunited with your pet.

What is micro chipping?
Your pet can be micro chipped at a very reasonable cost without the stress for your pet to be in a vets practice with all other animals and hospital smells. As a certified implanter of pet-detect!® microchips we do home visits, or you can come to us.

The micro chipping process if very short. It takes only a couple of seconds to do the micro chipping and the rest of the time spent is filling out the paperwork, which should take but 10 minutes. By the end of the day your pet will be registered onto the PetLog system. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice.

Once inserted, the microchip cannot move about or be seen, but can be read by a scanner through the skin. It is injected with a scalpel sharp, sterile needle under the skin of the neck, between the shoulder blades, in a simple and quick procedure, just like an ordinary injection.

Is it painful for my pet to be micro chipped?

It is relatively painless for the animal to be micro chipped or to have the micro chip in place. The injection of the micro chip can be compared to us getting a paper cut, due to the sharpness of the needle.

How much does it cost?

Most vets charge up to £45.
We charge just £20 and we come to you or £15 if you come to us. Your pet doesn’t need to have the stress of going to the vets, we do it in the comfort of your own home.
