Micro – Chipping

Sean qualified in 2001 to micro chip dogs and cats. Micro chipping can be done by Sean at Oak farm kennels. Also if  a dog is found Sean can scan them to find their owners.

What is a microchip?

A tiny, inert capsule the size of a grain of rice containing an identification number linking you to your pet.

How does it work?

If the unthinkable happens and your pet wanders away a vet, rescue centre or dog warden will use a small hand-held scanner to detect the microchip number. This number is registered with PetLog, the national central database run by the Kennel Club.  PetLog will confirm your contact details and you will be reunited with your pet.

Where is the implant site?

Under the skin between the shoulder blades.

How long will it take to implant the microchip?

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. technology.

How long does registration last?

Your pet is registered for life.
