Today, a lovely lady brought a 7 month old, female cat in for a general health check. The lady had been feeding the cat for the past few weeks thinking she was a stray and just wanted to make sure that nothing was medically wrong with her.

Standard procedure in our health examinations is to check the animal for a microchip. So we checked the little cat and found out, that not only was the ‘stray’ called Tilly, but she had an owner!

As microchips store a persons contact details, we were able to get in touch with Tilly’s owner. He was so relieved to finally find Tilly, after 3 desperate weeks of searching for her.

Microchips are tiny and are inserted under the skin with a quick and simple procedure. For such a tiny chip, they are certainly useful to have, especially when animals go off wondering and get themselves lost.

This means should your pet ever go missing, animals services or a vet will be able to scan your curious wonderer and be in touch with you within a matter of minutes.

If you would like more information on microchipping simply call one of our practices and a member of our friendly staff will be happy to help you.
