Dog owners are being urged to ‘Chip It Check It’ as part of ‘National Microchipping Month’ to highlight the benefits of microchipping pets.

The campaign also reminds pet owners to make sure that telephone numbers and contact details are up to date and correctly registered for their microchipped pet.

Micrcochipping could save the lives of thousands of pets each year and also prevent the trauma and grief for families when a much loved pet is lost. It speeds up the process of re-uniting a pet with its family and also of rehoming stray dogs.
