Although no one likes to think of their pet getting lost or stolen, unfortunately it does happen, as each and every year some 250,000 pets in the UK go missing. Collar identification tags are a legal requirement for dogs, but are not the best solution in themselves as they can fall off, break, or be removed. Microchipping is a permanent solution that greatly increases the chances that a lost pet will be reunited safely with its owner. If a pet is stolen and recovered by authorities, a microchip might provide the only means to identify and contact the owner.

Dogs must be microchipped, its the law
From 6th April 2016 all dogs in England and Wales, must undertake compulsory microchipping under new legislation. This will be mean any owner whose dog is found without a chip will have a short period of time to have the dog microchipped or owners could face fines of up to £500.
