After the 6th of April 2016 all dogs located in England and Wales must be micro chipped by the time their 8 weeks old. We can microchip your dog as we are trained professionals working to the guidelines and requirements for the dogs safety and well being. Contact our team today to discuss our microchipping service.
A microchip implant is an identifying integrated circuit placed under the skin of a dog. The chip, about the size of a large grain of rice, uses passive radio-frequency identification technology, and is also known as a PIT tag. Standard dog microchips are typically 11–13 mm long and 2 mm in diameter.
The purpose of microchips used for dog is to provide a form of permanent identification. These microchip implants are called radio frequency identification (RFID) tags.
We implant a Microchip into the skin of the dog, we then scan twice the dog to be able to locate and scan the identification number securely.
All dogs have to be micro chipped by law at 8 weeks and later.
K9 CLINICS are licensed to do micro chipping.
