MEDICATION VISITS & MICROCHIPPING
We are able to visit your pet at home to administer medication (previously prescribed by your vet). This service is particularly helpful for any pet owners struggling to administer oral medication to their stubborn or wriggly pet. This service is available in Surrey only. Prices start from £20 per visit.
We have been specially-trained to microchip your pet(s) in the comfort of your own home (Micro-ID Ltd). This service is convenient for you and stress-free for your pet(s). It is very important to ensure your pet cat, dog, rabbit and ferret is microchipped because if your pet is lost or stolen, you are far more likely to be reunited if they are microchipped.
A microchip is a small electronic device about the size of a grain of rice. The microchip is inserted under your pets’ skin, between their shoulder blades, via a quick injection. Once inserted, an animal cannot feel the microchip and the special capsule around it means that it does not break down and is designed to last your pet’s lifetime.
Legal Requirements – It is a legal requirement to microchip your dog. Since 6th April 2016 all dogs in England, Scotland and Wales must be microchipped and registered on an authorised database by the time they are 8 weeks old, and before they transfer to a new keeper. The new keeper must then register the dog in their name and keep their details up to date.
New Law Introduced (April 2023) - cats must be implanted with a microchip before they reach the age of 20 weeks and their contact details stored and kept up to date in a pet microchipping database. All owners must have their cat microchipped by 10 June 2024 and owners found not to have microchipped their cat will have 21 days to have one implanted, or may face a fine of up to £500. Owners will have until 10th June 2024 to microchip their cat.
This service is available in Surrey only. Prices start from £40.
