Pet Microchipping

Dog

We provide Pet Microchipping through our Dog Warden Service

From the 1st April 2017 the fee is £16.00

Free Microchipping

By law, from 6 April 2016, all dogs must be microchipped and your most current contact details have to be linked to that chip.

To be microchipped, your dog must be at least 8 weeks old and in good general health.

How can I get my dog microchipped?

Our dog warden can microchip your dog in your own home.  The fee for microchipping your dog is £16.00 per dog.   For more details please contact the Dog Warden using our online enquiry form, however if you wish to book a visit you will need to pay in advance over the telephone (01909 533764).

You can attend one of our regular free microchipping events or, alternatively, you can go to www.chipmydog.co.uk to see if there are any participating vets in this area to microchip your pet for free.

Keeping your details up-to-date

Microchipping legislation also requires that the owner's details are kept up-to-date.  You must therefore ensure that your microchip details are correct at all times by updating your registration if you 

  • Change your contact telephone number
  • Move to a new address
  • Pass the dog on to a new owner
