Microchipping and weight

Why should I microchip my pet?

A large number of pets go missing every year. If they are found and brought to a vet, pet charity inspector or the council warden they can be scanned and traced back to you in a matter of hours. The chip is implanted by injection and this can be done during a nurse or vet clinic. It causes very little or no discomfort on injection, and is inert so should cause no problem at all afterwards.



Is my pet overweight?

About 50% of pets are overweight! This is mainly due to lack of exercise and overeating. There are many serious health problems associated with obesity, such as heart problems, arthritis and even diabetes mellitus. If you can’t feel your cat or dog's ribs easily then it may be time to bring your pet to the surgery for a free weight check.
