How Do I
Do I have to microchip my cat/dog?
Cats and dogs must be identified by microchip by 12 weeks of age.
Microchips are about the same size as a large grain of rice. They are very safe. Your pet will feel little pain as the chip is inserted under the skin between the shoulders.
Microchipping can be arranged through your local vet or animal welfare organisation.
