Microchipping For Cats 

If your cat is microchipped: 

Please advise us of the microchip number, so that we can update our records. This will help us to re-unite you with your cat, should we need to. It is also important to ensure that your contact details held by the microchip company are up-to-date. You should contact them directly to make any changes. If you have the microchip number, but are unsure which company it is registered with, you can check here: www.check-a-chip.co.uk.

If your cat is not microchipped:

Following the government’s recent public consultation, it is considering making it law for owners to get their cats microchipped. Although it is not currently a legal requirement, it is highly recommended by the government and cat-rescue charities.

Although an ID tag can provide contact details, these can be lost easily. A microchip is a more reliable method of identification, without which it is difficult to reunite an owner with their lost or stolen cat. 

What is microchipping?

Microchipping is a very quick and reasonably painless procedure, whereby a small chip (the size of a grain of rice) is implanted between the shoulder blades. The chip has a unique number, which is readable with a scanner. This number corresponds with a database entry held by the microchip company, which provides contact details of the owner. 

When should I microchip my cat?

Some owners choose to have their cat microchipped when they have them neutered, if they are not letting them outside before this time. Alternatively, if you have your cat booked in for a vaccination or health-check, this would also be a good opportunity to get your cat microchipped at the same time.

For just £15 our vets and nurses can microchip your cat in a few minutes.

If you would like this to be done at the appointment you have just booked, please call us back on: 01432 357222 or email [email protected]

If you have purchased a kitten pack, there is no additional charge.
For Pet Health Club members the cost is reduced to £13.50.
