Microchipping

At Hanson's we use mini microchips that are significantly smaller than the standard microchips, this reduces the discomfort caused during microchipping.

Why is it important to microchip my pet?

At Hanson’s we strongly advise microchipping all pets to act as a permanent means of identification so that you can be reunited with a lost or injured pet as soon as possible. From 6th April 2016 it also became a legal requirement that all dogs have a microchip registered to an approved database by the time they are 8 weeks old. If you do not comply with the regulations you may be liable to pay a fine of £500. The microchip is a tiny tag, approximately the size of a grain of rice that is implanted under the skin at the back of the neck.

  • Great for cats that won’t wear a collar/dogs if slip the lead.
  • It can be fitted from any age.
  • Inexpensive (see prices page).
  • Can be applied in a routine consultation time / implanted while they are asleep during operations for a slightly discounted rate (see prices page).
  • The tag carries a unique code which is logged onto a national database along with your registered details.
  • The code can be read by anyone with a scanner (e.g. veterinary surgeries, police kennels, rescue centres).
  • Ensures you and your pet will be reunited if taken to a veterinary surgery /animal shelter for treatment.
