In this video, pet veterinarian Emma Milne explains the benefits of microchips and what you should look out for during process.

We all want to keep our much loved pet safe, and there is no greater worry than that of losing them. It’s a sad fact that nearly 1,000 pets go missing every day and only a small proportion of them ever find their way home.  Pets can stray for a number of reasons; they can become spooked during thunder storms or firework season, wander too far from home or become a little too curious whilst out on a walk.

But while you may worry about your pet going missing or getting lost, a lack of understanding about microchipping can leave you concerned that your much loved pet may feel discomfort during the process. However this is not the case. Most chips are as small as a grain of rice and are inserted in much the same way as a vaccination, so your pet will hardly even notice.

As there are so many chips available it is important to be fully informed of all the choices and make sure you get the best one for you and your pet, whether it is a dog, cat, or even fish!

In the following video pet veterinarian Emma Milne explains the benefits of microchips and what you should look out for.
