The Importance of Microchipping your Pet

What is Microchipping?

Microchipping is a safe and simple procedure.  The microchip itself is only the size of a grain of rice and on average costs between £10-£30.  Microchipping takes just a few minutes but it lasts a lifetime.

Why should I microchip my pet?

Once you have microchipped your pet your details will be stored in a database along with the microchip’s unique code. So, should the unthinkable happen, and your precious friend goes missing, you can rest assured that the likelihood of being reunited is far greater.

From the 6th April 2016 it became compulsory for ALL dogs to be microchipped.

How we can help

At Vetsure, our Premier and Premier Plus policies include cover for ‘Loss by Theft or Straying’ of up to £1000 and up to £300 for ‘Advertising and Reward’ should your pet go missing*.
On top of this, our Preventative Care Voucher option can also help contribute towards the cost of microchipping and many other preventative healthcare needs (vouchers only available via selected Vetsure accredited clinics).

We hope that your four legged friend stays safe and in good health but heaven forbid should your beloved pet go missing we want to help ensure they are returned home.
