Microchipping & pet passports
Many pets are reported missing every year and often many don’t find their way back home. Bruton Vets can help you avoid this from happening by microchipping your dog or cat.
A microchip is an identity chip that is a simple way to identify your pet and can increase the chances of your pet being returned home safely. The microchip is about the size of a grain of rice and is quickly implanted painlessly underneath your pet’s skin, between the shoulder blades. Each chip has a unique 15 digit code that holds vital details about your pet including your contact information. The microchip is registered on the national pet recovery database. Most veterinary hospitals and animal shelters have microchip scanners to check for identification.
If you wish to take your pet abroad then they will require a pet passport. Travelling in Europe is easier now using the latest EU pet passport. Ask us for details on pet passports in Bruton.
