Get your pet microchipped for just £15!
Published Thursday, 21 June 2012
To celebrate National Microchipping Month the Council are offering a discount on getting your pet microchipped
Microchipping gives your pet the best chance of being identified and returned if they become lost or are stolen and involves a tiny microchip being inserted under the animals skin which will have its own unique code. The chip is harmless to your pet and can be scanned and matched to the owners contact details from a database.
For more information or to request the Councils microchipping service, residents should call Customer Services on 01536 410 333.
Shirley Plenderleith, Head of Environmental Health said,
We are always keen to provide this service to pet owners as it can help ensure animals are reunited with their owners much quicker if their pet gets lost.
Cllr Ian Jelley said,
I would encourage all pet owners to take advantage of this value for money service, as it supports and promotes responsible pet ownership within the Borough.
