Microchipping Your Cat

mau egyptienWhy microchip?

The prospect of your kitten getting lost – and maybe losing visible identification – is painful to fathom. Cat theft is on the increase today as well, so security and pet locating is becoming an issue for all cat owners. Should your cat be involved in an accident, microchipping can mean your cat is identified and you are reunited quicker.

How microchipping works

Microchipping, which is the painless insertion of a microchip under the skin on his neck, means that any vet or cat rescue organisation can ‘read’ the chip with a handheld scanner, and your cat can be reunited with you quickly.

Your vet can perform the procedure at any of your routine appointments, and it literally takes just seconds to make your cat identifiable for life. The chip number will be entered into a computer system, and you will be sent a certificate confirming your ownership and address, plus how to amend your details should you move home.

 

Want to get your cat microchipped? Ask your local vet for an appointment.
