Microchipping your pet is now compulsory. A small chip with an individual number is inserted under your pet’s skin. Your details are kept on a central data base so if you ever change address or phone number it is your responsibility to change the details so if your pet is found they know who to call!
It is a good idea to get your pet an identification tag with your details and phone number engraved. This should go on a collar so if your pet is ever lost you can be contacted as soon as possible.
