Why Microchip?Beagle.gif

As long as the animal is big enough, virtually any pet can be fitted with an identity microchip - including dogs, cats, horses, rabbits, snakes, parrots, fish (e.g. Koi carp) and even tortoises! Ask your vet if your pet is suitable.

Identification and traceability is an important part of responsible pet ownership. In addition to your pet wearing a collar tag for identification, having your pet implanted with a microchip has a number of benefits.

It provides permanent identification for your pet and gives them the best chance of being reunited with you should they happen to go missing.

As part of the service provided by BackHome you will get lifelong registration on PETtrac, a fully DEFRA compliant, UK based reunification database is dedicated to reuniting missing pets with their owners 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.
