Budget Vets recommend that all pets are microchipped, especially dogs and cats. Microchipping is a wonderful way of ensuring that if your pet gets lost and found, it can be traced back to you. Collars and tags can get lost and broken, but once microchipped it stays under their skin for life.
The microchip is placed under the skin between the shoulder blades with a microchip “gun”, the gun has a long sharp disposable needle on the end that goes under the skin, but is thick enough to allow the microchip to pass through. It is a very quick process, and usually only takes a couple of seconds.
The microchip can be read through a microchip reader, which when passed over the microchip lets of a loud beep and displays an identification number. This number is then entered into a database which brings up your details. This means that you can change your details as many times as required, but we never have to microchip your pet again.
We offer the microchip as part of our puppy and kitten pack’s, and recommend Microchipping as soon as possible before you start to allow your pet outside.
We offer a kitten package which includes:
- 1st and 2nd vaccine
- 1 x flea treatment
- 1 x wormer
