Microchips

We offer both standard and biotherm microchips.  Biotherm chips are standard chips with an inbuilt thermometer, so that rather than taking a temperature rectally, we can scan the chip instead – saving indignity and stress.  They do tend to read slightly lower than deep thermometers – but thermometers will also depend on how far they are inserted……

Microchips are a legal requirement for all dogs over the age of 8 weeks (and hopefully all cats in the future).  It is also a legal requirement to keep your details up to date, and there is a fine of up to £2000 if this is not done.  They are also the only permanent, recognised system for definitive identification.
