Why is Microchipping Important?
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 can)
- 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 inserted
Remember you should change your microchip details if you move house. You can contact Petlog HERE
