Microchipping is now compulsory. A small chip (about the size of a grain of rice) with an individual number is inserted under your pet’s skin. The microchip number is recorded on a central database with your contact details. It is a standard procedure to scan any lost pet for a microchip. Please remember to change your contact details if you change your address or phone number.

It is also a good idea to get your pet an identification tag with your details and phone number engraved. This should go on the collar.
