Microchipping provides the security of knowing that should your dog stray, the chances of being reunited with him or her, will significantly increase.
Whilst every dog owner is legally obliged to ensure that their dog is wearing a collar and tag, these can easily get lost, or can be removed if a dog is stolen. A microchip is permanent. If you move to a new house, or change your telephone number, please call PetLog on 01296 336579 (24/7 lost and found line) as soon as possible to let them know.
It was a legal requirement in 2016 to have all dogs Microchipped for identity and reunification purposes.
Even newborn puppies should be microchipped by the breeder prior to them going to new homes which is a legal requirement.
At Clip’n’chip all dogs microchipped have their details put onto a website called ‘Chipworks’ and if done via the breeder owners are then given a code for them to amend new owner details currently free of charge.
To amend details or change of address please be advised there is a small charge to do this but highly recommended for reunification purposes should your dog get lost.

Using a specially designed implanting device, the microchip is injected through a sterile needle under the dog’s skin between the shoulder blades.
No, it does not hurt the dog. No anaesthetic is required and the procedure should cause no discomfort than a standard vaccination.
Just a few moments! In fact, by the time you complete the petlog registration form your pet will be protected by the latest I.D.
