A microchip is a sterile implant about the size of a grain of rice. Each microchip has an individual number which corresponds to your pet and the contact information you provide. In dogs and cats, the chip is inserted beneath the skin between the shoulder blades, and does not require an anaesthetic. A microchip is identified by a special scanner which is run over the body.
Since March 31st 2016 it is a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped.
