Microchipping

At Hanson’s we strongly advise microchipping your pet to act as a permanent means of identification. 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.
