Microchipping offers cats a safe and
permanent method of identification and increases the chances of a lost
feline being safely reunited with his owner.
- Microchipping is the most effective way of identifying a lost
pet (chips don't come off or put the cat at risk of injury like collars
- Each microchip has a unique number which is stored on a national
database. A scan of the chip reveals the owner's name and address from
the database's records
- A microchip is slightly smaller than a grain of rice and is inserted under the cat's skin between the shoulder blades
- The procedure is very simple and is no more painful than an
injection. A cat will not be aware of the microchip's presence once
Remember you should change your microchip details if you move house. You can do this by contacting Petlog on 08444 633999.
