Microchipping

Why microchip your pet?


At Woodcroft Veterinary Group, we recommend microchipping your pets as this is a great way to help them find their way home if they are lost.  Pets that get brought into us can be scanned to check for a microchip, and we can then contact you to let you know, and arrange getting your pet returned to you.




Mandatory microchipping for dogs


It became law to microchip all dogs and keep their contact details up to date with one of the registered pet databases, who collectively administer the microchipping scheme, in April 2016.  Breeders are responsible for microchipping puppies and must be recorded as the first owner of the dog.  All puppies must be microchipped by the age of 8 weeks old, and dogs must wear an ID tag on a collar.
